CHRISTMAS 1873.
THE FINEST PRESENT OF THE SEASON.
H. SCHUREN’S NEW SALOON PICTURE.
Is the most successful genre in photography. After several trials, MR SCHUREN has succeeded in producing photographs quite different from anything ever offered to the public in the East. For brilliance and finish, these pictures, which will be an additional ornament to every fashionable drawing room, will recommend themselves. Admirers of really good photographs are respectfully invited to visit H. SCHUREN’S Photographic Studio, Hotel d’Europe, Room 69, where samples of the new style of picture, taken here in Singapore, are on view.
