More on the A. A. Montano picture of Queen Emma, 1880.

Mr. Montano has presented us with a handsome photograph of Her Majesty the Queen Dowager. The portrait is a full length and represents Her Majesty in a commanding position, standing, with her dress train sweeping into the foreground; the features and figure are admirably clear; any stranger seeing it would at once say “How queenly!” We congratulate our local artist on his success. The handsome silver ornament with the crown in the foreground is a gift presented by Her majesty Queen Victoria.
