Mr Wm. McGuire, the itinerant photographer who is at present on a visit to the Thames, took the trouble last Saturday to photograph the members of the Pirates team in their football costume. We have been favored with one of the photos, which are fine specimens of the photographic art,

We had an art representative here on the 23rd ult. in the person of Mr William McGuire, photographer, of Waitekauri. Owing, however, to the day being somewhat gloomy, he was unable to proceed to business, viz., - the - "taking" of the battery buildings and the workmen employed thereat. Mr McGuire camped with us for the night and thoroughly enjoyed himself, pronouncing our mosquito show to be the liveliest and best he has ever attended. His camera was brought into requisition the following morning and as a result we anticipate the privilege of gazing on the picture of our battery buildings in all their imposing proportions, with its group of as jolly good fellows as ever plied planes or hammer. Mr McGuire has already established a reputation for first-class workmanship in photographic art, and his productions bear testimony to his artistic skill.

Mr Winn, who has taken over the business recently carried on by Mr McGuire, photographer, of Temuka, announces in another column that a dozen cabinet-size photos, can be procured for 12s 6d. The work turned out by Mr Winn is of a high class, and he is in consequence meeting with encouraging support in his business.

It is believed McGuire's name is spelt incorrectly on this cabinet card.
