EPS Meeting at 38 Castle Street

-  The Meeting had been delayed until 8 June 1892 so that it could be held in the new EPS Premises.

-  The President, H Blanc said:

“30 years is a comparatively long life for a Society to boast of.”

“The city has always been a nursery of medicine and literature and to these may be added its societies devoted to advancements of the arts and sciences.  Curiosity in photography was aroused.”

H Blanc spoke of Edinburgh's early history of photography:

-  The early Daguerreotype workers - Howie, Orange, Georgiades, Popowitz

-  Mungo Pontin who, in 1839, made discoveries which were later to lead to the carbon printing process.

-  The early informal meetings of photographers.

-  J Taylor, the first EPS Secretary

-  J Valentine, Sen. of Dundee, one of the first two Member to be elected on the night that EPS was constituted.

-  Other professional photographers, Tunny, Moffat, Ross and Nelson
