PEARSON, John



John Pearson

succeeded Henry Billens in Akaroa in March 1894

Photography.— Mr Pearson, a photographer very well known in the neighbourhood of Christchurch, has taken up his quarters in Akaroa, having re-opened Mr Billens' old studio at the back of Mr Wight's shop opposite the chemist's.

He has arranged nice back scenes and has some capital specimens of his skill to show to any visitors, and asks us to particularly state that all the work is done here, in Akaroa, and not sent to Christchurch to be finished. It is to be hoped that residents will take advantage, of the opportunity afforded, and patronise this caterer for local art.
