Connolly & Herrmann

Connolly & Herrmann

(James Bennett Connolly and Richard Herrmann)
Photographic Artists

Lambton quay

this partnership commenced business about September 1887.
Succeeded by Connolly, Beauchamp & Price (J. B. Connolly, J. Beauchamp and H. Price) about August 1889, they were succeeded by Price, O'Malley & Co. in about February 1890.

MR. CONNOLLY begs to notify that he has admitted Mr. R. HERRMANN as a partner into the firm, and that the business of General Photographers will for the future be carried on under the style of CONNOLLY AND HERRMANN.
The public will no doubt recognise the vast importance of having their wants attended to by the heads of the firm, and as Messrs. Connolly and Herrmann PERSONALLY UNDERTAKE THE OPERATING AND RETOUCHING DEPARTMENTS of their business the public can rely on receiving the VERY BEST WORKMANSHIP AT LOWEST PRICES.
Mr. HERRMANN, who is acknowledged by the profession to be UNEQUALLED IN THE COLONY as a FIRST-CLASS OPERATOR AND RE-TOUCHER, holds several First Prize Medals won at various American Exhibitions. He also possesses a THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE OF PHOTOGRAPHIC CHEMISTRY (rarely acquired by the every-day photographer), and as the WHOLE FOUNDATION of the photographic art is based on CHEMICAL PROCESSES, the public will no doubt recognise the IMPORTANCE OF SUCH KNOWLEDGE.
With the addition of Mr. HERRMANN to the staff, the firm are enabled to bring HIGH-CLASS PHOTOGRAPHY within the reach of all. They guarantee that whilst the likeness will be strictly preserved, their productions will be UNSURPASSED for ARTISTIC LIGHTING AND POSING, DELICACY of HALF-TONES, and excellence of finish.

The firm of Connolly and Co., the wellknown photographers, of Lambton-quay, has been strengthened by the addition of a new partner in the person of Mr. R. Hermann, and henceforward the style of the partnership will be "Connolly and Hermann." Mr. Hermann possesses a high reputation for skill in his profession, and his handiwork displays excellent taste in arrangement of the "subject" and in finish. The new firm will doubtless meet with the measure of success which it deserves.

MESSRS. CONNOLLY, BEAUCHAMP, and PRICE have much pleasure in announcing that they have arranged to retain Mr. Herrmann's services in the firm, and that he will still be available to his admirers.
