Very correct and artistic photographs of the new Public Library building, to be publicly opened to-morrow, have been taken by Mr E. Willmott, of 283, Queen street. These photographs show to perfection the fine structure which is a credit to our city, and they will be on sale at low prices, in a variety of sizes and styles, to-morrow. Many people will doubtless secure copies to send to friends at Home by the outgoing mail.
