John M Turnbull

Preparing Dry Plates

Despite Turnbull's last appearance in the trade directory in 1878 as Photographer, he appears to have been actively involved with photography well beyond that date.

At the EPS Meeting held on 6 April 1881 he described an improved method of washing gelatine, part of a process for making his own dry plates.  He said he had used this method constantly in the ordinary course of business over the past twelve months.
