Society for Photographing Relics of Old London

RA Collection: People and Organisations

According to Alfred Marks, the Honorary Secretary, the Society for Photographing Relics of Old London, was formed by a few friends who wanted to record the Oxford Arms Inn which was under threat to be demolished to allow the expansion of nearby Old Bailey. The availabilty of the 'photographic views' was publicised through a letter to The Times and as the project was well received, it was found practical to continue the series. In all twelve issues were produced over twelve years from 1875, comprising a total of 120 photographs.
