1895 Members' Exhibition

Exhibition at 38 Castle Street

British Journal of Photography gave two reports on the Exhibition, which was open from 2 to 23 February 1895, or until the end of February if it proved successful.

The BJP reported:

-   The exhibition opened at 38 Castle Street on Saturday 2 February with a very successful smoking concert.

-   It will be open to the public, free, every day from 10am until 10pm until 23 February.

-   The exhibition comprised landscapes, figure studies, portraits from the old and familiar silver prints to the modern carbon, together with a large collection of lantern slides

-   There were about 90 entries in 8 competitive classes, comprising about 175 photographs and 120 lantern slides, together with a number of very fine works sent for exhibition only.

-   Amongst the non competitive works were two very fine portraits of the late Colonel CGH Kinnear, the inventor of the modern form of camera bellows and the late John Moffat, one of the fathers of photography in Edinburgh, by Mr FP Moffat, one of the Vice Presidents.

-   There were also some very beautiful works by Messrs William Crooke, W Lamond Howie, James Patrick and the late Alexander Ayton jun.

Review

Further comment on the exhibition was given later in the same edition of BJP.  The reviewer commented:

- The exhibition is a modest one, though to amateur photographers the pictures on view will doubtless possess artistic interest.

-  Mr William Howie has sent two large photographic landscapes - the one 'Balmoral Deer Forrest', and the other, 'Glencoe Mountains' - both taken when the hills were clad in snowy vestments.

-  James Patrick has forwarded a series of plates depicting country life and rural pursuits..

-  Hanging in the same section were an artistic portrait of a lady with a harp, and a likeness of the late and the late Colonel KinnearAlexander Ayton jun.

-  'Bits Near Edinburgh' is a series that merits attention for happy combinations of beauty and situation, and something similar may be said of the pictures of Killin.

-  Cathedrals and castles, golf links and golfers, churches and Clyde steamers, hills and hawkers, pastors and picnic parties, still life and statuary, and a variety of other subjects, allied or otherwise have been "taken" for the purpose of this Exhibition and its accompanying competition, and the results are seen on the walls.
