American Photography

American Photography was a monthly publication of  about 60 pages per month.  This was one of the  photographic journals that Edinburgh Photographic Society subscribed to for several years after setting up a library in its new premises in 1892.

I have studied the 1910 and 1911 editions of American Photography, initially  selecting these years to see what was recorded of William Crooke's tour of the USA.

The 1911 editions of this journal are described as Vol V which suggests that it was first published in 1907.  I have found no publisher's name and address on the journal, but the journals ended with a section titled:  'Camera Notes - Organ of the Camera Club of New York, 121 West 68th Street' so this club may well have been instrumental in publishing the journal.

The ownership of this journal changed, often, in the early years.
