The Amateur Photographic Field Club Challenge Trophy

The Photographic Field Club was founded in 1865 but it existed under various forms prior to this date, its aims were to bring landscape to a prominent position in photography. It is not clear when it closed or merged with any another Society.(thanks for info Dr Michael Pritchard)

John G St Aubyn died on 16 December 1975 aged 86. An obituary was carried by the Royal Photographic Society's Photographic Journal vol. 116 p. 83.

It looks like the founding dates is 1858 according to listings in the BJPA.
