Rev Frederick Charles Lambert and Exhibition Catalogues

After slaving away on the 5th floor of the Cambridge University Library with the journals and exhibition catalogues of the Photographic Society of London, later the Royal Photographic Society, I’ve today added another photographic author and photographer with a Cambridge connection to the site – Rev Frederick Charles Lambert.

While looking up what I thought might be a Cambridge house name for Lambert – Rulverdome – I found in the Google search results this name associated with Lambert and that the wonderful DeMontford University has actually digitised the catalogues I spent hours pouring over. They have a nice searchable interface here of Catalogue records from the annual exhibitions of the Royal Photographic Society 1870-1915: http://erps.dmu.ac.uk/advancedsearch.php  This has thrown up a few more names to research. Also – search results show that William Farren exhibited there on no fewer than 10 occasions – a fantastic achievement yet to be noted on his site entry
