Photographic Journal

Photography

Published when?

Photography was published:

"weekly, every Thursday morning in town and country"

by Ilfe & Son, 3 St. Bride Street, Ludgate Circus, London EC. 

I have seen copies of Photography for the years 1890-1908 and 1913, but I have not yet investigated the years when the journal Photography was published.   

Photography is one of the journals that Edinburgh Photographic Society  subscribed to when it established its library at its new premises at 38 North Castle Street in 1892.

I have looked in more detail at the 1892 and 1893 editions.  It was in 1892 that the Photographic Convention of the United Kingdom was held in Edinburgh.  The event is well covered by Photography.
