A Camera Club at Melrose

Photography was invented in the 1830s and by the early 1900s, when this photograph was taken, thousands of camera clubs were established throughout Britain. Taking a photograph required physical strength (to carry all the heavy equipment), skill, technical know-how and patience. These gentlemen are using plate-cameras and looking through a glass plate and the lens to compose their shot. Whilst the caption says ‘Melrose’, the location is probably Melrose Abbey.
