International Photographic Exhibition to be held in Glasgow, in September 1891

On page six of The Glasgow Herald, on Friday the 17th of April, 1891, readers were informed that:


“It has been arranged to hold an International Photographic Exhibition in the Institute of the Fine Arts during the month of September next. The Exhibition is promoted by the Glasgow and West of Scotland Amateur Photographic Association, who have raised a substantial guarantee fund to cover expenses. Liberal support from professional photographers in Glasgow and elsewhere has been promised, and the committee hope to make this the largest and most interesting exhibition of photography which has yet been held in Glasgow. A special feature of the Exhibition will be a collection of photo-mechanical work, which is now becoming so much used for the illustration of books, newspapers, &c. During the time the Exhibition is open interesting lime-light lantern entertainments will be given, and musical promenades.”
