For the best general collection of life and cabinet-size photographs, retouched in India ink, we award the first premium to Bradley & Rulofson. There are, however, single specimens of this class in some of the collections of the other exhibitors, which are not excelled in the Art Gallery; particularly several finely worked pictures in ink, of hunting scenes in the collection of Nahl Brothers and Bradley & Rulofson--beautiful specimens of the art of landscape composition. There are also fine specimens of plain photographs in the collections of Nahl Bros. and Jacob Shew, to whom we equally award the second premium. [P. 67.] For the best photographs, worked in water colors, first premium to Nahl Bros. The superior merit of Messrs. Nahls' pictures in water colors, is their brilliancy and harmony of color, strength, delicate finish, and truth to nature. [P. 68.] First premium for water-colored photographs. First premium for porcelain pictures. Certificate of merit for plain photographs. [P. 69.]
