Edinburgh Photographic Society

Practical Section

Elementary Lectures, began in 1892 - the year that EPS  moved into its new premises at 38 Castle Street. 

From 1898 onwards, these lectures were described as Practical Photography Lectures, and from 1919 as Practical Section Lectures.  They continued until 1925 - the year that EPS left the premises at Castle Street.

In later years, a wide range of speakers gave these lectures.  Many of the lectures included demonstrations. Here are some of the subjects covered in the last three seasons. 

They include one of the early lectures by Archibald MacLucas.  He gave his first lecture in 1917, when he was President.  He was still giving lecturing to EPS throughout his further spell as President from 1942 to 1945, and gave his final lecture in 1953.
