The Origins of Photography in Salisbury 1839 – 1919
This exhibition provides an overview of the rise of photography in Salisbury during the first decade or so of the medium’s existence up to the end of the First World War.
While amateur photography began in and around the city during the 1840s, it was following the 1851 Great Exhibition that commercial photography took off in Salisbury.
The exhibition will examine the photographers of the 1850s and 1860s and the subject matter and photographic formats they exploited. The extensive collection of the Salisbury Museum and other local collections will provide examples of a wide range of images of Salisbury and the surrounding area.
Normal admission prices apply, for example, adult admission is £8 and a 50% discount is available for English Heritage members.

Competition rule change
The rules have been amended to reflect the recent decision to increase the maximum image sizes for our internal PDI competitions. Images may be no more than 1600 pixels wide and 1200 pixels high. The change has already taken been implemented.
Following on from a presentation a few weeks ago, and at the request of some members, we have added a step by step guide to help our members submit entries to our internal club PDI competitions. It is just one approach; there are plenty of others!
We will take on board any comments that our members have and update the guide as necessary.
To view/download the guide, first go to our website and from the main menu select “Competitions”.
You will find a new section headed “How to ensure PDIs comply with club rules” which contains a link to the guide.
