Photographic. - An advertisement in another column announces that Mr Kirkwood, of Wellington, is at present visiting Foxton on a photographic tour, and has his studio at Mr Jonson'a house, on The Avenue. A number of bona fide specimens of Mr Kirkwood's talent at his art are displayed in Mr Jonson's shop window, opposite Whyte's Hotel. These show that Mr Kirkwood is a first-class artist, and residents of the district would do well to take advantage of the present opportunity to have their portraits taken. Mr Kirkwood has all the latest improvements in his plant, and his stay is limited.

HI I have some copies (sadly they are photocopies) of family photos that were the work of J Kirkwood. The reverse of 1 on them is imprinted thus: J Kirkwood - Portrait and Landscape Photographer - Palmerston North and Marton - This card can be enlarged to any size and coloured in oil or water colours. The other 5 are ingraved the same but must have been "old stock" as only Marton was printed on and & Palmerston was hand written. J Kirkwood was clearly a thrifty photographer not wanting to waste his old cards. Hope this is of interest.
