The club has been offered the use of a display case at The Vestry House Museum.
They have a policy of allowing local groups and historical societies to promote their activities with the use of this display case free for a month. I’ve booked it provisionally for June, just prior to the Summer School so hopefully it can generate some publicity.
As you can see it’s not that big, large prints will not fit, so we have a challenge to fill it with club and photographic related objects.
The Club has been going for more than a hundred years so I feel the historical aspect should be prominent, see what you’ve got tucked away in the attic!
However, this is the 21st Century, and we all use the latest technology so we have to emphasise this as well if we want to attract new membership.
This is a great opportunity to raise the profile of the Society. We’ve got about two months to find stuff… Anything… old photos of Walthamstow, holiday snaps, old cameras, who’s got the oldest digital camera??
I would like to use a digital photo frame showing a rolling presentation of members images so please dig out your best shots, old and new, no time limit, email them to me.
Also please email me or have a chat at a club night with your ideas. If you have something you want to include take a photo and email it to me or bring it along.
Don’t worry, the utmost care will be taken with all items.
