    Great Eastern Photographic and Advertising Co.'s letter ad, Nanaimo Free Press, 1888 08 01.
    This notice provoked a sardonic reply from one of Nanaimo's resident photographers, W.P. Coughlan in the 4 Aug 1888 issue under the title "Oh, Photographic, Is It?"

  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: The earliest mention of his work was an article which described a photograph he took of the ship Northbrook at anchor. An ad he ran in the Nanaimo paper described him as a "home photographer." His work was primarily portraiture. Coughlan was involved in an interesting exchange of newspaper letters with the itinerant firm the Great Eastern Photographic and Advertising Company in Jul 1888.
