Edinburgh Calotype Club.

 

 

Around 1842, a group of Edinburgh advocates and other gentlemen connected with Parliament House visited St Andrews to see the calotypes produced by Brewster and others.

On their return to Edinburgh, they created the Edinburgh Calotype Club.

BJP Report

“The death of Professor Cosmo Innes (31 July 1874) noticed by our 'peripatetic' correspondent last week recalls to our mind some of the long-forgotten reminiscences of what was undoubtedly the earliest photographic society in the world - the Calotype Club - of which Professor Innes was one of the founders and one of the most enthusiastic members.”
