"Mr E B Wain (Norton-in-the-Moors) was awarded first prize - silver medal - for his photograph, 'The Bend of the River,' which is reproduced as a frontispiece this month. Frequenters of the river Thames will not fail to recognise the delightful scene. The photograph was taken in May last year, with a R R lens, working at f/16, 1 sec. exposure being given, at 4.30pm. The print is one of the best on bromide paper that we have seen, and has been very crefully exposed - 45 secs., 2 feet from a paraffin lamp - developed with eikonogen, and squeegeed on to a piece of matt-surface celluloid."
