including  a list of EPS meetings held in the 1881-82 Session, and the result of the competition for the annual Presentation Print.

"There were thirty-three competitors, who sent in one hundred and fifty pictures.  The five awards were decided by ballot, in which every member was invited to indicate in their order of desirability the five pictures he considered most acceptable.

Each picture was hung anonymously without frame or glass.

The gold medal was awarded to HP Robinson, Tunbridge Wells for his picture "Will they Never Come.?"  Two decades earlier, Henry Peach Robinson had entered his photographs in competitions staged by the Photographic Society of Scotland, won medals in these exhibitions and had his work selected as Presentation Print to be distributed to members of the PSS.
