Wickens, T. G., and Co.
Wickens, T. G., and Co., (Trayton George Wickens), Photographers, Manners Street, Wellington. This firm started business in 1895, and by the excellence of their workmanship, have already taken a place in the front rank as photographic artists. The studio is filled with all the latest improvements, the light being all that could be desired even in dull and cloudy weather. Mr. T. G. Wickens served his apprenticeship to Mr. Frank A. Coxhead, photographer, of Princes Street, Dunedin; afterwards he was for some time in business in Palmerston North, where he secured a fair share of the business. Having decided to open in Wellington, he took the above premises, and has no cause to regret the change. Mr. Wickens, who superintends the operating, has engaged first-class artists for re-touching and printing. As a young man he was a first-rate sculler, and gained several cups while residing in his native place.
