Thomas Brumby Johnston was
a Founding Member of The Photographic Society of Scotland (PSS) in 1856.
- He became a PSS Council
- He became PSS Secretary 1862-65
- He became PSS Hon Auditor 1865-68.
- He was a Member of
Edinburgh Photographic Society 1861-65, [and later?]
Thomas Brumby Johnston
entered his photographs in several PSS Exhibitions:
- Five collodion portraits, including
'Mrs Hogg, widow of the Ettrick Shepherd'.
- A revolving stereoscope with eight
- Two waxed paper landscapes of
'On the Banks of Allan Water'
'Old Bridge, Stirling - Twilight'
Five views - scenes in Fife. These were described in the PSS
Catalogue as 3 collodion, 2 waxed paper and 1 tannin.
The exhibitions listed in above are the 1st, 3rd and 9th
PSS Exhibitions. These are the only PSS Exhibitions for which
catalogues appear to have survived.
I expect that scrutiny of the
press reports of the 1850s and 1860s would reveal that TB Johnston also
exhibited his work at PSS Exhibitions in other years.
