Mr Price, Photographer has, during the past few days, been engaged taking views of the principal streets and buildings in town, many of which are very creditable works of photography and denote the artist's skill and knowledge of his profession.

Masterton

We noticed at Mr T. E. Price's studio this morning, a photographic enlargement of the late Mr Haigh, of Greytown, whose melancholy fate at Coolgardie is familiar to our readers. The portrait is presented in the uniform of Greytown Fire Brigade, in which the deceased held the position of Lieutenant, and it is painted in an artistic manner by Mrs Price, who makes this branch of art a specialty. Altogether it makes one of the most striking and effective pictures which has come under our notice.

Some very excellent Maori portrait work is now on view at Mr T. E. Price's studio in Queen-street. The coloring is very fine and shows exceptional skill; in fact, more artistic subjects could not be turned out anywhere in the Colony, The ability of Mrs Price as an artist in colors is well-known, and difficult work is often sent to her for execution, from distant parts.
