Archive photos

Many more photographs are taken of activities and exhibits at quarterly meetings. outings and seminars than can possibly be published in the Bulletin. So here we will have most of the photos taken during the year. They are grouped into "Albums" but not otherwise labelled ( it's too much work!!) .

For your information - the photos originated from a vaiety of sources: Negatives, prints, Picture CD, or digital camera files. The image resolution and size varies considerably between sources and we have therefore re-sized most to fit inside a 1200x800 block. They are saved as JPEG images at a compression to give a file size of about 80K.

A few are larger than this to enhance detail or if they took my fancy!

The photo numbers have no significance except to distinguish between them within an album

In response to several requests and now that we have a bit more space I shall be resurrecting old photo albums - from as far back as I am able. This will be a lengthy project and will be done in the order in which I can access the originals in my digital archives!

These photos are deliberately reproduced at low resolution and are unsuitable for printing.

ALL the images are Copyright ©SOT and you may only copy or publish them with the permission of the Society - seek it via the 'Contact Us' link above
