Fine Appreciation of N. Z. Railway
Studios Art Work.
Among the visitors to New Zealand by the “Franconia” last year was Mr. Emil Bommer of New York.
Mr. Bommer is a manufacturer in that city, and controls a large iron trading concern. During his travels over the New Zealand Railways his attention was attracted by one advertisement in particular, and he sent the subjoined sketch and request (written on the back of his business card) to the Officer in Charge in order to mark his appreciation. He also called at the Studios to personally congratulate Mr. S. Davis, the artist responsible for the design, which he considered to be the finest he had seen in all his travels.
