'The Photographic Review', reported in its edition
of March 8, 1890:
"The second lime-light exhibition of work of members of
this society was held in Junction Street Hall, Leith, on February 26th, and
was attended by a very large number of people.
Mr T W Dewar presided, and in the course of his opening
remarks, stated the the membership had increased greatly during the past
year. They had fifty members on the roll, including a number of
ladies, and during the year, a number of excursions had been made, the
result of which they would see on the screen that night.
He also stated
that the secretary, Mr A D Guthrie, had received the only prize presented by
the London Photographic Journal for landscape.
There were then
exhibited about 200 specimens of the members' work, many of which were
exceedingly interesting and well executed specimens of photographic art.
were rendered at intervals throughout the evening."
