TO THE LOVERS OF
It is one of the most promising features of the present age that, though merit may not, amidst fierce
and unscrupulous competition, be immediately recognised,et when perceived it is instantly adopted
and supported by the public; while the pretentious shams that on making their appearance at once
attract attention, ultimately disgust their superficial admirers and fall into deserved contempt. This it
is, doubtless, that furnishes an explanation of the fact that
MR. J KATTERNS, PHOTOGRAPHER
7 GOLD STREET, NORTHAMPTON,
stands so high in the estimation of his fellow townsmen, with a good fortune not always experienced
by those who, with himself, bring into the practice of their art great care and the result of assiduous
study. J.K., on commencing business some years ago, suddenly became a general favourite, and his
popularity has gone on increasing until the present time. The extensive patronage conferred upon him
by all classes of the community, has compelled J.K. to erect a
NEW GLASS STUDIO,
the largest in this county; and the increased facilities it affords, enables him to produce
which for accuracy of detail, and perfection of finish, leave competition far behind.
“Hope deferred maketh the heart sick,” and few disappointments are more poignant than, on receiving
the portrait of a loved but distant relative or friend, to find the features so slurred and distorted that it
is impossible to realize again the expression of that face which memory has cherished perhaps for
years. This arises more frequently from the knavery of impudent charlatans, than from the effects of
climate or exposure. J.K. uses only the purest materials, and therefore it may be confidently relied on
