Messrs Whitehead Bros., photographers, have some excellent specimens of the photographic art, particularly in enlargements of well-known residents portraits.

Whitehead's picture gallery has been one of the attractions of the Show week. His collection contains high-class specimens of the art both in portraits and landscapes. But his especial forte is one in which few artists excel, that of pictures of interiors of rooms.

Mr H. N. Whitehead announces in another column that he has just started as a photographer in this town, in the premises between the Bank of New Zealand and the Red House, in Main-street. Mr Whitehead's long experience with his brother at Hastings in the Hawke's Bay district, should be a sufficient guarantee that the work executed by him will be of a first-class character, and we are satisfied from specimens seen that he is sure to please his patrons. Mr Whitehead makes a specialty of family groups, and undertakes to take his camera to any part of the district free of charge.
