Advertising

The EPS Council minutes reported:

“After consideration had been given to the best method of advertising the Exhibitions, it was decided to have a sandwich man in Princes Street on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Opening Remarks

Transactions of EPS  in March 1902 reported on the opening of the exhibition:

“Mr Lang Todd emphasized the well known axiom that the road to success is through our failures;  that if we studied our failures instead of discarding them, there would not be such a long succession of them.

Opening Concert

Transactions of EPS  reported that the Opening Remarks were followed by a concert arranged by F P Moffat, with the following entertainment:

-  Madame Hamilton Kedslie:  a couple of violin solos.

-  Miss Meta Brotchie:  a dance and song in Japanese character.

-  Miss Mina Watt:  a pianoforte solo

-  Mr A E Moffat:  a couple of violoncello solos

-  Miss Lucy Hamilton + Mrs Nesbitt:  accompaniments with much taste

Medals

Transactions of EPS  reported on the awards to be made at the exhibition:

“A new  principle, as far as this Society is concerned, was introduced this year, in that the competitive element was absent.

One class only of medal was given, and the number to be awarded was left to the Judges' discretion.  One picture did not, therefore, compete with another, but all had to pass a standard of excellence fixed by the Judges themselves."
