Later Exhibitions

From 1861 onwards, Edinburgh Photographic Society staged its own exhibitions.

The number of prints entered for the exhibition varied over the years, reaching a peak of 3994 in 1988.  Hence the poem from Ko-ko:           

-   The Magic of Four Thousand

For advice to Members entering prints into Exhibitions, Competitions and portfolios, see:

-   Hope Springs Eternal

The most recent Poem about EPS Exhibitions was written by “M” in 1992.

-   Pictures from an Exhibition

This poem ends:

"Summer, Winter, Spring and Fall,

  See them all at Merchant’s Hall."

This is the Hall in Hanover Street at which EPS held its exhibitions from 1982 to 1995  -   only a few yards from the premises in Hanover Street where the Photographic Society of Scotland held its first Exhibition in 1856.

For a different perspective on Exhibitions, seeing them from a Selector’s point of view, we have, from the Gilbert and Sullivan section:

-    A Selector’ s Lot
