New EPS Member
Dorothy Young was featured in the EPS Bulletin, in November 1962, in
a short articles in the series: 'Members you may like to meet'.
Dorothy was educated at Mary Erskine School and at Edinburgh
The article commented on Dorothy's photography:
"Interest in photography did not start very early in life, but
only when she thought she was getting a bit too old for golf (up to then
her ruling passion) and wanted a hobby for her declining years."
In fact, Dorothy's interest in photography lasted for over 55 years!
She joined EPS in 1950, then moved to Glasgow where she was a member of
the Scottish Ramblers' Association Camera Club. Then she joined
EPS again in 1955.
Dorothy's first camera was VPK. By 1962, she was using:
- a Rolliecord for black and white photography for record work
a simple Contina for colour work.
