Sixty Years of Club Photography in Devizes!
It was recently pointed out that the club has its 60th Anniversary on 30 September.
The club was founded in 1958 and one of the founder members Richard (Dick) Larden and his wife Mary who joined soon afterwards and was Chairman for some years still regularly come to club meetings.
The venue has changed several times – the last being in 2009 with a move to Devizes Sports Club because of a growing membership.
Photography has changed several times during the 60 years from black & white film printed in a darkroom, through colour film and projected colour slides to the present digital age.
The club continues very much to thrive with a present membership of around 60 and with a reputation for a very high standard of photography.
We celebrated our 50th anniversary in style with an event in the Town Hall but 10 years on we had quite forgotten that we had been going for so long.
May the club continue to thrive and welcomes anyone with an interest in photography to join.
Happy Anniversary!
