Smethwick Photographic Society: 90th Anniverary

Congratulations to Smethwick Photographic Society (the home of Midland Photography) which is celebrating its 90th year. It is currently holding its 37th International Exhibition of Photography at the Old School House in Churchbridge, Oldbury which they bought 12 years ago. The Society began in 1921 when an advert was placed in a local newspaper, inviting people who were interested in photography to attend a meeting at the Technical School. The Victorian Old School House was repaired and restored, and now includes a dark room, a studio, a lecture theatre and other facilities for their own and visiting exhibitions.

You can view some of the entries on the website link here.
