The Members’ Night of the exhibition on Friday 15 April brought around 50 members and guests to the Society.  The trophies were presented to winners by Stephen Meek, President.  On Saturday/Sunday 16/17 April the exhibition was open to the public but we had a mere 50 or so visitors.  One of these was Doug Corrance who gave a talk to the Society on 20 January.  He spent some time talking to those of us on the door, and took this photo – Neil Scott and Chick Calder at the table with Richard Bingham on the steps, all supervised by David Octavius Hill
