THE FINEST PRESENT OF THE SEASON.

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. SCHURENíS Photographic Studio, Hotel díEurope, Room 69, where samples of the new style of picture, taken here in Singapore, are on view.
