Brooklands Photographic Society will hold their 2019 exhibition at the History Centre next year. It will run between 26th March and the 12th April 2019 and will be the seventh time the Soceity’s annual exhibition has been held at the History Centre.
The society was founded in 1968 at the staff photography club of Reckitts in Dansom Lane in Hull. A move to the Brooklands Pavilion in 1982 gave the club its name and this name has been retained although the club now meets weekly in Sutton Methodist church every Tuesday.
The society is the Hull areas largest photography interest club and meets for 46 weeks each year. Its members come from a large geographical area and the club is well known in the local community due to its linked work with Sutton and Wawne Museum, Humber All Nations Alliance and the local charities it supports by taking photography shows out in to local community groups such as the WI or church groups.
The 2019 exhibition will feature 120 prints with each club member who contributes to the exhibition having one of more images accepted. All subjects will be covered and the public will be asked as always to vote for their favourite three images. The member with the most public votes for their image will win a prize donated by the club.
The History Centre brings together the material held by the City Archives and Local Studies Library with those held by the University of Hull. These include the City’s borough archives, dating back to 1299 and amongst the best in the country; records relating to the port and docks of Hull; papers of companies and organisations reflecting Hull’s maritime history; papers of notable individuals including Andrew Marvell, Philip Larkin, Amy Johnson and William Wilberforce; records relating to local and national politics and pressure groups; and over 100,000 photographs, illustrations; maps and plans, newspapers, special collections and reference sources relating to Hull and the East Riding.
