With the help of some amazing photos from the archive from Brian C the Society put a stand up for the Rotunda Birthday event over the August bank holiday. Some of the photos of our early pioneers of the SFNS show how dedicated they were and how they worked with their very basic equipment of the time – no digital photos and long lenses then. The stand created some interest with a few people picking out names they knew recorded in the first minutes of the SFNS in April 1899. The stand was unmanned so there are sadly no records of any comments apart from those on the reception evening on the Friday.
The Rotunda appears to be thinking of this as an annual event so we need to think of what we want to do for next year and also look for volunteers to help out. One of Brian’s ideas is to get photos from the archive with ‘un-named’ people on them and see if we can get anyone to recognise them.
