Amersham Photographic Society History

World War 2 was over. King George VI was on the throne. Clement Atlee was Prime Minister. The National Health Service had just been created. Times were hard.

In Amersham, 18 people with a common interest in photography got together on March 2nd 1951 and decided to form Amersham Photographic Society (APS).

Under the chairmanship of HR Baxter ARPS, the glorious 18 founding fathers met originally in The Red Cross Hut then later The Scout Hut before moving on to The Community Centre (then called Woodside Farm). APS have met on Monday nights at Amersham Community Centre in Chiltern Avenue ever since but have migrated from The Barn Hall to The Drake Hall when the society outgrew the former building.

That small beginning of 18 members has now grown to almost 150.
