Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Cheltenham was one of the first towns in the country to establish a professional photographic studio and has one of the oldest camera clubs. The book, marking the 150th anniversary of Cheltenham Camera Club, reviews the history of photography in the town and its leading figures such as Hugo van Wadenoyen and Dr E. T. Wilson, physician, philanthropist, a pioneer in photomicrography, co-founder of the Cheltenham Photographic Society and father of polar explorer Edward A. Wilson. It outlines technological developments in photography and sets the photographic scene in Cheltenham into the wider social context, ending with a summary of photography in Cheltenham today.
