Studio Light Incorporating The Aristo Eagle - The Artura Bulletin 1913 | by Aristo Motto



The Christmas business has been greater than ever before - more photographers have been advertising than ever before, and more people have been having pictures made. They have been reminded by almost every magazine they have looked over for Christmas suggestions that photographs make very desirable presents and that there is a photographer in their town. Naturally, the photographer who advertised got the bulk of this business.
