Tue Princess of Wales (who by-the-by is a reader of the Optical Magic Lantern F¥ournal) intends decorating a tea service of sixty-three pieces with photographs taken ?in Scotland by Her Royal Highness. * 2 ® Scenes from the Life of the Rev. Fohn Wesley is the title of a new set of sixty slides, introduced by Messrs. York and Son. 2 e * WE have been réquested to announce that a new society, the Liverpool Camera Club, now hold its ordinary meetings in the rooms of the Liverpool College, Shaw-street, on the second Wednesday in each month, at eight p.m. Mr. W. Tansley’s (hon. sec.) address is 14, Wentworthstreet, Liverpool. * cod ® Tue Yorkshire College Photo Club will hold an exhibition of apparatus on 30th inst. * * * Some months ago we suggested the use of the lantern in photographic studios from an ultimate business point of view, and find that this idea has, in many cases, been taken up. We recently had the pleasure of attending an 4¢ Home given by Mrs. Gabell and Mrs. Fenton, of the firm of Gabell and Co., at. their photographic studios, 22, Ebury-street, S.\W. With music in the reception rooms, and the lantern in the onerating studio, a very pleasant evening was passed by those favoured with an invitation. We learn that a series of At Homes are to be given, * * a Tue Liverpool Exhibition (thanks to the energies of Messrs. Lange and Mayne) is a great success. As usual the lantern demonstration department iswell patronised. Two lectures are being given to large audiences each evening. The manipulation of the lanterns is in the hands of the well-known firm, Messrs. Archer and Sons, which is equivalent to saying that everything is carried out with , great perfection.
