Amateur Photographer gave a report of this meeting, and referred to:

"... about 200 slides, the work of members, principally their negatives taken during the last season.  Many of the slides were of great excellence, though one or two showed that all the members were not quite up to making a successful picture for  the lantern."

The journal spoke highly of work by:

- J Patrick: Largo Bay with finely rendered clouds

-  Hugh Brebner:  figure subjects

-  j Stewart Smith:  views in Belgium

HJ Blanc (president)

-  C Reid:  fine animal subjects

"... about 800 persons were present and evidently appreciated the treat provided, only it is rather a pity that a small number of young people made their presence in the hall too prominently manifest.  The time has now passed when a lantern exhibition such as was given on Wednesday should be considered merely an amusement for youngsters."
[Amateur Photographer:  4 Mar 1892]
