Arthur Linnemann, Hokitika

Lake Kanieri, near Hokitika
published by Arthur Linnemann, Hokitika

We have received from Mr Arthur Linnemann a set of illustrated postcards showing a number of West Coast views, which he has just published. The series are illustrative of Westland views principally and Linnemann has shown good judgment in his selection of some of our most charming bits of scenery at Lakes Kanieri and Mahinapua, the Franz Joseph Glacier, etc, etc. The number also include two excellent Southern Alps pictures by Dr Teichelmann. The post cards will make very nice souvenirs for sending to friends at a distance, and being well printed from good photographs they will give the outside public a good idea of the beauty of the West Coast. They may be obtained in assorted packages from Mr A. Linnemann and Mr J. King at a very moderate price, and no doubt there will be a large demand for them. - West Coast Times, Issue 13120, 26 February 1904, Page 2
