TALES AND SKETCHES. On Photographs. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 16 January 1875
TALES AND SKETCHES. , On Photographs. Photoobames sob pieces of esrd-basrd about toe size of playing-cards. They are not, however, half so pretty as play ing-cards. I never saw one anything like as fine as the king of hearts. A man ones told me that Photoeranhs often represent queens of hearts, but I nerer saw one with such fine colours and bright backs as the cards in a two and sixpenny pack, with die goldand blne crossbars. Photographs are likenesses of people or children. Here are also Photographs of places, bat no one can ever find out the places of which the Photographs are the ffliniii'Mnrj- So these are not worth frdlring of. He people who p . their Photographs taken are judges, uon-tamen, members of parliament, men who write poems and plays, kings, Siamese twins, singing men and women, race-horses, unmarried workmen, generate and other murderers, giants, officers, downs, and men in nm versniea.

SATURDAY, JAKTJAHY 16, 1875. Among die scenes and groups of charac ters which the bright imagination of Charles Dickens has pourtrayed, there is none more genial than Mr. Wabdle's Christmas party, at which the immortal Pickwick was the hononred guest The jovial Mr. Wardle r.in«yir Mr. Tup. max and the Spinster Acnt. Ml Winkle and his Arabella, are characters that leave pleasant memories, and call up feelings of regret that their prototypes have passed away. Bat in view of certain modem requirements stSI keener regret is felt at the loss of ,two other -haracrer5 that the great novelist has painted in vivid colours. When shall we meet with vorthy n-iin-s^Tiratig^ac of the rosy, neat, good-tempered, and faithml Bar bara — model of housemaids — and the chivalrous 'Sajiivel,' who combined the most conscientious service with the devotion of a. friend- Possibly, servants as exceptionally good as these may be met vim, when masters and mi«jT»-»a^; are found to be as considerate as the great ...
