The History of Stockport PS

25 May 2016

I wasn't much of a fan of History at school, and it was my first dropped subject. So I was pleasantly surprised when SPS's own Terry Hewitt entertained us with a potted history of photography, Stockport Photographic Society, and how times have changed.

We were taken through the stages of early photography at a brisk speed, which I really appreciated with my short attention span. And Terry related these developments to the emerging trend in photographic societies, which tended to be a wealthy man's domain.

Flying through two world wars, changing facial hair and clothing fashions, numerous venues and activites, and the ups and and downs of male and female membership, Mr Hewitt enlightened us with amusing observations and customs which would seem very strange in today's camera clubs.

All in all, not bad, for a History lesson!
