Among the many recent improvements in the business premises of Geraldine, Mr J. A. Willoughby's establishment is worthy of special mention. The studio, in dimensions 30 feet by 20 feet, has been furnished in a very artistic manner, and patrons visiting it will find it one of the most commodious and up-to-date in South Canterbury. Mr Willoughby announces that having once more got his house in order after the various alterations he is now in a position to undertake photographic work of every description.
Mr J. A. Willoughby, photographer, Geraldine, has an announcement in this issue, advising that as Christmas is approaching photos for the Old Country should be taken at once in order to reach their destination by that time.
