Photography Medal

Thank you to John Donnelly, County Durham, for letting me know that Thomas Pursey was awarded a Medal for Photography in the Edinburgh Industrial Exhibition, 1901.

John tells me that he found this medal in a scrapped car many years ago, and it has lain in a drawer ever since.

These all show clergymen.  Some were taken by Thomas Pursey.
