This being the case, you will be interested to understand something of the work, and also of its desirability as a means of livelihood. It is the purpose of this catalogue to bring the matter fairly before your notice. We believe that if you will give this the time it deserves, and carefully consider the claims of this profession, you will freely admit that the art of photography offers inducements not excelled by any other occupation, for it is pleasant as well as profitable. The objectionable features surrounding a person in a store or office are not found in photographic studios, and the comparative independence of a person commanding a good salary lifts him above the ordinary drudgery to be found in most of the trades. This college was the first of its kind in the world to stand the test of time. Established in 1893, it has passed the stage of experiment. The reason that there are not more colleges of photography in existence is that it is far more difficult to teach high-grade photography than it is to practice it after the art-science has been mastered. The art itself is in its infancy, and is vigorously reaching out into new fields of usefulness. Photography is indispensable, and at the same time requires the highest skill. The demand for good workmen in this line will never diminish, but must steadily increase. If you are looking for steady employment - attractive and at the same time remunerative - you will certainly make a mistake if you do not carefully read this. In case you do not care for such an occupation, or at present unable to avail yourself of it, you will kindly hand this to some friend who, you think, might be interested in this work. By so doing you may be the means of helping them to a position of profit and pleasure. We feel sure that if you conclude to enter our college our relations will be satisfactory and agreeable, and that in later years you will remember our institution as a helpful and pleasant place - your stepping-stone to prosperity. We send forth this catalogue, hoping that whether you can come or not it may do you some real good.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
