More Photographs this Year

The 1857 Art Manufactures Exhibition in Edinburgh attracted far more photographs than the 1856 Exhibition.  

This was partly due to several of the professional photographers in Edinburgh having chosen to display their work at "The Art" rather than at the PSS Exhibition.
