British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

The Bromoil Circle of Great Britain is compiling a list (at the moment very short) of any bromoil related archive collections in the UK. The secretary Brian Iddon would be interested if anybody has any information relating to the Bromoil Process or Bromoilists were work is held in any institutions,museums,libraries etc.

I did recieve your message and did send a reply.

Thank you for your information. I have not come across the work of John or even knew of him. He most have been an accomplished bromoilist to have 200 images accepted in the London Salon. Are any of his images in a public archive that could be viewed ?

Looking at his photograph,he looks very much like Sam Weller FRPS who was the founder of the Bromoil Circle of GB.

Dear Mr Iddon

Presume you received my previous message, perhaps not.

See my web site for a page on John St Aubyn FRPS (1889 - 1974) who has over 200 Bromoils accepted in the London Salon during his lifetime, he was also Chairman of London Salon. 

I have 30 of his original Bromoils & know of the whereabouts of about 150+ other prints in private & public collections.
