"In this issue we have the pleasure to present to our readers a portrait of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, who, it will be remembered, is President of the Amateur Photographic Association. The following short account of His Royal Highness' official connection with the Association has been courteously contributed by the Hon. Secretary, Mr. A. J. Melhuish, F.R.A.S. :-
'One of the first acts of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, on attaining his majority, was to do honour to Amateur Photography by graciously consenting, at the request of the Council of the Amateur Photographic Association, to become the President. this Society, the parent of the numberless Amateur Photographic Associations since formed in every part of the globe, was established in 1861.'"
