LaVerne Magic Lantern before restoration – from Back Focus June 2023

Toronto. Our sister organization in Australia recently sent out their newsletter, the APCS NEWSLETTER No.139 – September 2023.

The Australian Photographic Collectors Society, inc. (APCS) has been an exchange member of the PHSC for many years. Visit their website here for more information about this enthusiastic and active group.

The current newsletter is online and may be viewed here. They also publish a journal Back Focus (like our own Photographic Canadiana) and also place the current issue online for all to see.

Note that while the APCS have both newsletter and journal online, they ask interested people to not only download the documents but join as well to help fund the APCS and its events. APCS only sends members in Australia a printed copy of Back Focus. Those members without an Australian address are requested to download the PDF version as international postal rates today are too high (no surprise).

The magic lantern shown at left/above is from an article in the current issue of Back Focus (begins on page 21). Download issue 118 and enjoy this and all other articles.

PS. The next ‘Photographic Market’ to be held for APCS members is this Sunday, September 17th. Not an APCS member. or not planning to be in Box Hill, VIC, Australia on Sunday? Then be sure to visit our own auction on the same day – an Estate Auction with many unusual items for both collectors and users (film and digital).
