The 2nd Open
Exhibition of 1902 was held from 22 November until 6 December in the EPS
Premises at 38 Castle Street.
This was the exhibition
that would normally have been scheduled for February 1903, brought forward
by three months.
There were 279 exhibits
from 73 EPS Members and 20 other exhibitors. The numbers were rather lower
At the previous
exhibition in February 1902 there had been 301 exhibits from 78 EPS Members
and 31 other exhibitors.
