22nd February 2019 – 65 years of (South) Reading Camera Club

The photographic society now known as Reading Camera Club this year celebrated its 65th anniversary with a social evening looking back at the history of the club. Originally formed in 1954, and then known as South Reading Camera Club, it recently changed its name to reflect the greater catchment area which it serves. Members old and new enjoyed short talks from members, displays of members’ work, a collection of cameras dating from the 1950s, and a chance to see photography the ‘old’ way, with sequences of projected slides provided by members, some of whom have been members for over 40 years. The evening was part of the club’s ‘Sapphire’ sequence of events, which included our highly successful Robert Canis evening, held earlier in the year.
