New Photographic Studio.
We perceive that Messrs Swan and Wrigglesworth (late Mr G. H. Swan), Lambton Quay, have erected a most appropriate and commodious gallery for the purpose of practicing on a more extensive scale the art of photography.

The room is comfortably large, being 31 x 15 and is fitted up with every facility for the comfort and convenience of the sitter.

By a judicious contrivance the light is modulated or subdued at the will of the artist, a desideratum much required, inasmuch as sometimes it would, we believe, be impossible to obtain a picture when the sun is at a certain height. The firm have also converted the old shop into a waiting room, which is plentifully supplied with portraits of "old familiar faces" and the no less pleasing stereoscopic views of Home and Colonial scenery.

By recent arrivals the most improved cameras have been received and we can confidently assure our readers that a call at the Studio of Messrs. Swan & Wrigglesworth will amply repay them for their trouble;

STEREOSCOPIC VIEWS OF WELLINGTON AND SUBURBS. — Messrs. Swan & Wrigglesworth are at present engaged in taking stereoscopic views of this town and the surrounding neighborhood, which, we doubt not will meet with a ready sale at the hands of those colonists who wish to show their friends at home faithful sketches of the principal scenery of the " Land we live in."
