A conference was held in Manchester during July 3–4, under the auspices of the Manchester and District Branch of the Institute of Physics, and under the chairmanship of Dr. F. C. Toy, and was devoted solely to photography, with the principal object of giving an opportunity for discussion of the many photographic problems met with in scientific research, where photography plays so large a part. A large amount of time was necessarily given to reviews on the various aspects of photography and its applications, but in the first session fundamental problems of latent image formation were discussed and some original work was reported; this will occupy most of the space available for the present report.
