Mr. Paynes, photographer of Coventry, to whom I had lent the Schoolroom for the purpose, gave a lecture there tonight on the Zulu War, illustrated with dissolving views – photographic. It was all very well done and there was a full room. He told Elley that he had done better here than in any other place with but one exception.
