With the publication of this, the second issue of “Photo News”, the publishers wish to express their appreciation of the great interest shown in the introduction of this magazine.
The heavy demand for copies immediately the first issue was on sale, confirmed the belief that such a magazine would prove popular in Hawke’s Bay. We trust that with an ever increasing number of local pictures in each issue, the magazine will be welcomed regularly in every household.
Apart from our daily newspapers, there are no other publications which circulate through all sections of the community, and it is our hope that “Photo News” will enable many worthy organisations to receive additional publicity which we feel sure they merit. If we can contribute something towards stimulating a wider interest in the community activities of many of our own citizens, we are sure that we will be fulfilling a valuable purpose.
To the many booksellers and others who helped us so much to introduce “Photo News” to the general public we are extremely grateful.
Subject to available space “Photo News” will publish a photo of your wedding, engagement, coming-of-age, etc., if we have the photographs and the details.
Give the information to your local photographer and he will supply us with a photo, or ring 3697 Napier or 4274 Hastings, make an appointment, and a “Photo News” photographer will attend the function. If you live out of town, or are unable to ring, write to The Editor, P.O. Box 470, Napier, giving a phone number where possible, and “Photo News” will arrange for a photographer anywhere in Hawke’s Bay. When giving information to your photographer or filling in our form, please print clearly. This will ensure that names appear correctly in the magazine. All forms sent to the editor must be signed by the bride or groom or a parent.
