Newsletter 12 – 12

Editor David Bridge has come out with another whiz-bang issue to announce our March events and other stories of interest to all photographic historians and collectors.

From Left: Cover

From Left: Cover 21-12; Tintype Studio’s Paul Sergeant and Greg Snow; Special deal at Photo Network Expo; George Eastman House experiencing an issue with potential neighbours; and Sam Mabuchi’s organization sponsors both a catalogue and an exposition of antique French cameras in Toyko, Japan.

This issue begins with the important announcement of a CHANGE OF VENUE for our March 20th Toronto meeting and notice of our March 17th AUCTION this Sunday, also with a CHANGE OF VENUE. This is followed by Mark Singer’s Toronto Notes which cover the well received February talk given by Messrs Sergeant and Snow from the Tintype Studio. Notice is mentioned of the PHSC involvement in a summer long display at Pearson International Airport, our first IMAGE SHOW next month and a special offering for members who visit the Niagara School of Imaging’s Photo Network Expo which the society is assisting. We follow with two items about the GEH. First, its ongoing challenge to a developer wishing to build a mid height apartment building on the eastern edge of the GEH property, and secondly, notice of the famous institution’s spring workshops.

Journal editor Bob Lansdale reports in his usual thorough style on the JCII Camera Museum exhibit of French Cameras. The exhibit is covered by  a thick well illustrated catalogue. Friend of the PHSC, Sam Mabuchi, editor of Tokyo’s Hand Made Cameras of Japan Club provided the details to Bob Lansdale. Hosted by the JCLL, this exhibit is made possible by the All Japan Classic Camera Club supported by both the French embassy in Japan and the Club Niepce Lumiere in France.

Next is a report about PHSC member Lorne Shields’ excellent bicycle collection being reviewed and illustrated in two consecutive issues of The Wheelmen magazine,  a magazine for bicycle collectors and enthusiasts.

This issue follows up with the columns “From The Net“. “Current Events” and “Want Ads…” plus information on the articles in the current Photographic Canadiana 38-4, and our special DVD of 35 years of Photographic Canadiana back issues.
