Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
A blog posting by Weitian Liu, an Enlight Foundation scholar, pursuing an MPhil in History of Photography, describes the acquisition of some 900 negatives by James Pugh, AIBP. ARPS. between 1967 and 1972 which have been added to the St Andrews University Special Collection.
The negatives were bought at a car boot sale by the donor and mostly show older buildings and ruins in Scotland: castles, bridges, churches and monuments.
Little is known about the life of the photographer who was a member of the Royal Society of Arts, the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, the Royal Photographic Society and Institute of British Photographers. They have been added recently to the university's catalogue for photographic collections.
