Holmfirth Amateur Photographic Society
The Holmfirth Amateur Photographic Society was founded in 1885.
By 1887, when Mr. T. Brownson was named as the honourable secretary of the society, meetings were held "on the first Tuesday of each month".
The society was still in existence in 1908, when Mr. J. Roberts of Victoria Square, Holmfirth, wrote to The Amateur Photographer to say:
We are reorganising the Amateur Society in this town. I shall be greatly obliged if you will kindly make it known through the medium of your valuable paper that anyone who may feel disposed to join us, if they will communicate with me can have all particulars.
