We have to-day to record the departure for Auckland of Mr Charles A. Ogilvie, who for some months past has been in the practice of his profession here as music, singing, and drawing master, in which capacity, whilst giving every satisfaction to his patrons, he has also endeared himself to the general public by his obliging and gentlemanly demeanor, and his willing assistance to all our local entertainments for charitable and other purposes. As organist to the church, and leader in our singing classes, he will long be missed, and we have no doubt that in the northern capital Mr Ogilvie will soon attain the amount of patronage his high qualities as an artist and musician deserve. We regret that by Mr Ogilvie's departure Balclutha and district is now left without a professional teacher of music, &c. , and we trust the residents will yet take steps towards secure the services of a gentleman competent to undertake those duties.

The Airlie Studio
29A Vivian Street, Wellington - circa November 1900 to circa 1905

The Airlie Studio is the latest photographic establishment to be opened in Wellington. It was opened this morning by Mr. C. A. Ogilvie, and is situated in Vivian-street. Mr. Ogilvie is well known in the South Island, and has just returned from an eighteen-months' visit to Old Country, having spent the greater portion of his time in the best studios in the North of England, perfecting his knowledge of the photographic art. The Airlie Studio has been specially arranged for its work, and is equipped with the latest accessories. Mr. Ogilvie shows some very artistic work done during his stay in England.

An Attractive Studio. We draw attention to the advertisement of Mr Charles A. Ogilvie, photographer, of Vivian Street, Wellington. Mr Ogilvie lived amogst [sic] us in Marlborough for nearly twenty years, and on his leaving the district, he visited the Old Country, where he was employed in a first class studio for a year or two. On his return to the colony, three years ago, he established his studio in the Empire City, and has certainly pleased the public. Mr Ogilvie makes a specialty of children's pictures and enlargements, and he has gained a reputation in these branches of photographic art. In the matter of photographing children, and also in enlargements, we should say that Mr Ogilvie is hard to beat. His advt. appears on our 3rd page.
