Historic City Snappers Exhibit At Barbican Library


Photo exhibitions are two-a-penny in a city with as many galleries as London. What makes this one different is the heritage of the exhibitors. The City of London & Cripplegate Photographic Society have been saying 'cheese' since 1899, when words like 'Flickr' and 'Picasa' would have earned you a rap on the knuckles for slighting the Queen's English.

A free exhibition of their more recent work, including some impressive shots of London, can be seen at Barbican Library until Saturday 28th August. Around 80 photographs are on show, most of which are for sale at £30-£60. Two glass cabinets contain a small display of old cameras by member Terry Fallis.
