A Plea for more Outdoor Meetings

1887

James Crighton made a passionate plea for more Outdoor Meetings in his lecture to EPS on 4 May 1887.  He said:

A bond of Brotherhood, so to speak, is engendered.  

Experiences are given by men of outstanding ability whose sage counsel and thorough practical knowledge are of the utmost service to those who, it may be, are only on the threshold, and with timorous steps feeling their way to attain to some degree of perfection in what they have put their hands to men to whom, because of their skill, we make profound obeisance, and cherish the memory of others who have been removed from this sublunary sphere giving us all an encouragement to emulate them .

Such men as I have indicated have been, and are now, on the roll of Membership of the Edinburgh Photographic Society.
