The Photographic Industry of Great Britain 1918

FORTY firms who manufacture photographic goods have banded themselves together as “The British Photographic Manufacturers' Association, Ltd.,” for the purpose of extending their export trade by developing to the fullest possible extent friendly business relations with buyers in the Overseas Dominions and in foreign countries. This is the first annual handbook of the association. The important parts of it are printed in English, French, Spanish, and Russian, and many of the members' announcements (or advertisements), which fill the second half of the volume, are also given in the four languages, though some omit the Russian version, and others are content with English and French or English alone. After the list of members comes an article by Mr. G. E. Brown which gives a concise sketch, first of the history of photographic invention, and secondly of the photographic industry of to-day. He shows how British invention and British industry stand in the very foremost position. Indeed, if it were possible to abolish all that originated in this country, there would be very little, if anything, left of photography. The handbook gives a classification of makers under the headings of the goods they offer, registers of trade names and trade marks, and various other data to facilitate international dealings. The secretary of the association will be glad to send a copy of it to any established dealer abroad who does not receive one and applies to him for it.
