Carbon Photograph

Exhibited at the Convention

The Practical Photographer referred to photographs on display during the Photographic Convention of the UK in 1892.  This was held in a room usually occupied by the Royal Geographical Society of Scotland.

The journal added:

"Perhaps the best photograph in the room was the very large and wonderfully successful group by Mr Alex Ayton junr., which was shown as a carbon enlargement.  Several very fine carbons were also shown by Messrs Elliott & Son and M&T Scott of Edinburgh."
