From the site Early New Zeland Photographers (includes his photo & written 1885)
... Mr Shailer, Photographer, has adopted the use of electricity in connection with his business, and he finds the saving of labor and time to be really astonishing. The battery is principally used for the work of re-touching negatives. The wire being attached to the re-touching pencil held in the hands of the artist keeps the pencil in a continued rapid movement so that it has merely to be moved quietly over the surface of the negative instead of the old style of marking out separately and slowly every little blemish appearing on the glass. The time alone saved by this method in an ordinary carte de visite is about an hour and three quarters

26 Nov 1918
... Mr George Shailer died in Palmerston yesterday, after a lengthy illness, 71 years of age. He landed in Wellington with his wife and four daughters from the sailing ship Ocean Mail on February 2nd 1874.
Later he travelled from Foxton to Palmerston by train, which in those days was drawn by horses and put up at the corportaion barracks at Terrace End, afterwards proceeding to Feilding by dray, the members of the party having to take a Government tent with them to provide accommodation. At Feilding Mr Shailer engaged in contracting for the erection of houses, some of the first buildings in Feilding being erected by him, while he and three shipmates felled and cleared the bush and bridged Warwick street. He then took up a 40 acres section at Makino, which he successfully farmed until he was obliged, on account of ill health, to relinquish the land and engage in the photographic business in Feilding. Thirty-six years ago he purchased Mr T. Kirkwood's business in Palmerston, which he successflly conducted until 25 years ago, when he retired and took up land at Hokowhitu. Here he engaged in the fruit-growing industry, with which he was connected up to the time of his death.
He leaves a widow and a grown up famly of six sons and six daughters:
Mrs J. D. Smith, Palmerston North
