Mora Studios Adelaide

Hi

 I am trying to track down "Mora" studios that operated out of Rundle Street in Adelaide.

This is one of their advertisements

Many thanks

Hi

Some additional information
 The Advertiser (Adelaide, SA ) Friday 8 January 1915, Page 12 of 14
SOLDIERS PHOTOGRAPHED FREE.
It is every soldier's duty to have a faithful and permanent portrait of ...himself before leaving for the front. To enable him to do this without cost to himself
THE MORA STUDIOS, 53 Rundle street,are photographing members, of the 3rd Contingent Free of Cost. The negatives will be preserved so that copies may be had at any period

Where did those photos go?

They seem to have been good at conserving South Australian history.This composite was made by them in 1908.
