The Club was incorporated March 17, 1891, the incorporators being: J. H. Wheeler, J. F. Wade, A. E. Boardman, Will C. Eddy, B. D. B. Bourne, E. H. Balcom, C. D. Tucker, George L. Stone, George E. Davenport, E. E. Sweeney.

Outings were arranged to points of historic and picturesque places and largely attended. Local ground was not neglected by the members, and many photographs of Medford's historical points were made and used for illustrations and lantern slides.

Every year the club furnished a set of slides for the New England Lantern Slide Exchange, and for a number of years sent a set of photographs to its various clubs.

Two sets of slides furnished by the club made it famous. ‘Paul Revere and his Midnight Ride’ was given its initial showing in the Medford town hall to an audience that taxed its capacity. By special request it was also given in the high school before the students. It was also given before the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanics Association and many other societies.

Another set was the ‘New England Poets,’ which was a credit to the members in their individual work and to the club itself.

Mr. J. Henry Norcross was elected the first honorary member (May 3, 1892) for his many courtesies.

It would not be advisable to occupy space with the personnel of the club (which is possible) but it had members from Greater Boston who were foremost among the amateurs.

Although not active now, there is a group of the members who still hold the organization. Commercial developing and printing had its share in putting the camera clubs out of existence. The present officers (hold-overs) are: President, John F. Wade; VicePresio-dent, L. E. Shattuck (deceased); Secretary, Everett Scammon; Treasurer, Charles A. Clark; Executive Committee, J. F. W. Ames, E. B. Dennison, Will C. Eddy.

Arrangements are being made (1923) for a reunion of
