"Our portrait this month is of Mr. William Booth, President of the Bury Photographic and Art Club, a gentleman who has been an enthusiastic amateur photographer since 1854. In the past he has done much in wet collodion work, and follows very closely all the processes of the present day. He was one of the founders of the Bury Club in 1882, and has been elected President for the second time. The society is in a very flourishing condition, and has now some seventy members."

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