Edinburgh Photographic Society

Studio Group

1960s

Edinburgh Photographic Society moved into its current premises at 68 Great King Street in 1955, and created a studio on the first floor.  The studio has been well used both by individuals and by the Studio Group. 

These are the dates of the Studio Group Meetings:

I compiled this list, together with other lists of EPS Group Meetings in 1996.  I have not updated these lists from 1996 to date, but may do some day.
