Tunstall Camera Club’s Exhibition
Did you know that there was a Camera Club in Tunstall at the beginning of the 20th century?
Called the Tunstall and District Photographic Society, the club held a photographic exhibition and a social event in the courtroom at the town hall on the afternoon of Thursday, February 13th, 1902.
As well as photographs, the exhibition contained lantern slides taken by four members who had been awarded medals in a recent competition. During the afternoon the four prize winners (Mr Capey, Mr Critchlow, Mr Walley and Mr Webster) were presented with their medals.
Before the exhibition closed, members of the society held a concert party and were entertained by the a group called the Victorian Glee Party.
