Conference on photographic conservation

From: Chris Woods <c.s.woods>
Date: Monday, February 2, 1998
The UK Photographic Materials Conservation Group is pleased to
announce its next one day conference, which will be held at Laycock
Abbey, the family home of Sir William Henry Fox Talbot. the 'Father
of Photography' and at the Fox Talbot Museum, Laycock, Chippenham,
Wiltshire, England.

This is an exciting opportunity, exclusively arranged for the PhMCG,
to view both the Museum and the Abbey.  Conference speakers have
been invited to talk on a variety of topics relating to the nature
and identification of historic photographic processes.  The
conference will be held on April 7th 1998.  Members and non-members
alike are welcome.

It is hoped that coaches can be provided to ferry delegates to and
from Laycock from Chippenham and Bristol rail stations.  More
information about this will be available closer to the time.

The Museums and Galleries Commission have generously agreed to
provide grants to assist conservators to attend this conference.
Information about eligibility and applications for grants can be
obtained from the Hon Secretary, David Parker, by telephone on
0181-876-3444 extension 2335, or in writing to PhMCG, PO Box 17286,
