Mr Hinge, photographer of the "Canterbury Times," has been in Akaroa taking views of the town and its surroundings. He has visited the Kalk, Wainui caves, Dan Roger's cliffs, Nikau Palm Gully, the lighthouse, Flea Bay, Scenery Nook, Island Bay and the cliffs outside the south head of the harbour. He also took pictures of the grass seeding industry at Tikao, and views of Tikao Bay, French Farm, Barry's Bay, Onawe, Duvauchelle, and the old water-wheel at Robinson's Bay used by Messrs Saxton and Williams for their saw mill.
He leaves for Christchurch to-morrow morning. Mr Hinge informs us that he sends his photographs to the "Auckland Weekly News" and the "Otago Witness" so the photographs of Akaroa will be sent all over the Dominion, and prove a good advertisement. Mr Hinge expressed himself as very grateful for the hospitable manner in which the Akaroa Borough Council had put every facility in the way of his obtaining good photographs.
