  • Photographic Collectors' Club of Great Britain  (PCCGB)

    This society caters mainly for collectors of old cameras and equipment.  The society journals are informative.  The society holds photographic fairs, meetings and auctions around Britain.   Its web site has links to other web sites of interest to photo-historians.

The Royal Photographic Society has a long and distinguished history, and a world-wide membership.  It offers distinctions (FRPS, ARPS and LRPS) and has a number of special interest groups.  The RPS web site has links to many other web sites relating to photography.

This society has been meeting in Edinburgh since 1821, and has been discussing photography since 1839.  Another lecture on photography is to be held on 14 October 2002.
