What a great first talk we had from Margaret Salisbury, one of our honorary Vice-Presidents, on Wednesday 26th September evening. In a near full-house, the audience thoroughly enjoyed Margaret’s inspirational talk and images. There were significant learning points in the first half of Margaret’s talk that included images of some of the Welsh slate mines followed by some truly informative travel images of place and people in Ethiopia in the second part. This was billed as the Gracie Alison Memorial lecture and Gracie is remembered for her 40 years as Secretary of the Society. Gracie was instrumental in seeing EPS through some difficult times and helping to relocate us to Great King Street. Margaret knew Gracie well and chose to provide the tribute to Gracie in her own way. It was a great surprise that Margaret presented a portrait of Gracie, taken by Bill Wisden, a former Honorary Vice-President of the Society, who sadly passed away last year. The portrait will be hung in the newly refurbished library. It’s an excellent print, please take time to view it.

It was widely reported that the Prime Minister, The Rt Hon Theresa May MP, visited Edinburgh on the 7th August 2018 to sign the Edinburgh and S.E.Scotland City Deal and that she had taken the opportunity to experience some of the cultural events of the Edinburgh Festivals. We are pleased to say that one of the events attended by the Prime Minister was the 156th Edinburgh International Exhibition, currently on view at our premises until 26th August. Here is the Prime Minister being hosted by two Past-Presidents of the Society – Edith Smith, Chair of the 156th Edinburgh International Exhibition and Sandy Cleland Honorary VP EPS.

Better late than never, for the first time we have a gallery of the PDI part of the 2017 members’ exhibition. See the Galleries menu to find it.

I’ve developed a more streamlined process to tag these with the correct title and author, which should speed up was a very tedious process, and one of the reasons for not doing this before.

To get an equivalent gallery of the Prints, we’d need everyone to send in matching, properly named, files for all their images.
