"Only the First Prize (silver medal) was awarded, the winner being Mr. Arthur J. Leeson, the able and energetic Secretary of the Birmingham Photographic Society. His photograph, 'A Good Load,' is reproduced as the frontispiece. The print sent us was exceptionally good, and was on Whatman's home-salted and sensitised paper, a good warm tone being obtained with the borax bath. No second prize was awarded, no photograph being of the desired standard."

Text by Charles W Hastings, editor of 'The Photographic Societies' Reporter,' 'Amateur Photographer,' 'Photographic Quarterly,' etc.
