A selection of the lectures from 1923 - 1926

The Pictorial Section lectures were held once a month for just three seasons.

Alexander Ayton who gave many of the early lectures was an professional photographer from 1876.  He was EPS President briefly, until his sudden death whilst apparently in good health, in November 1894.
