HP Robinson exhibited work in the following exhibitions in Edinburgh.  He was awarded Medals at the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th PSS Exhibitions and at the 1882 EPS Exhibition.

Fading Away

-  Little Red Ridinghood  No 1

-  Little Red Ridinghood  No 2

-  Little Red Ridinghood  No 3

-  Little Red Ridinghood  No 4

'Fading Away' was made using five negatives.  This photo created controversy in 1860 when HP Robinson explained to the Photographic Society of Scotland how he had created it.  Some of the Members did not approve of such manipulation.

Amongst the papers for the 1860 PSS Exhibition, I have found evidence of Robinson having sold 59 photographs at prices ranging from 5 shillings to 15 shillings each.
