Manchester Meeting at Cross Street Chapel

2 October, 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

£5 – £6

We are delighted to begin our new season with a very topical talk:

Early photography in Manchester: introducing a hitherto unknown portrait of William Gaskell

Gilly Read, vice-chair of the Royal Photographic Society’s Historical Group 

Gilly Read first briefly describes the appearance and expansion of photography in the 19th century, before describing how it developed in Manchester.  She has identified more than 750 Victorian photographers in Manchester: traces of some of their studios survive.  Finally, Gilly surveys the Gaskells’ (rather slight) use of photography, and introduces a photograph of William, which does not seem to have been known previously

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE OF TIME AND FEES  due to the increased cost of holding the meetings.

Doors will open at 12.30 pm giving  30 minutes for a quick sandwich, if you wish to bring one in from one of the nearby sandwich shops (tea and coffee will be available for a small donation to Chapel funds)

The talk will begin at 1pm

The meeting closes at 2.30pm

The cost will be £5 for members and £6 for non-members
