Description:Congratulations are expressed by the President of Stafford Photographic Society to three members, after they received presentations in recognition of their long service. Left to right: Mr and Mrs J D Jones, the President Mr H J Cochrane and Mr S D Barnwell. Please contact us if you recognise the woman on the extreme left in the background.

Mr Barnwell and Mr Jones had their 25 years’ service recognised at the Society’s annual presentation of awards, held in the Stafford Public Library on the evening of Tuesday 29 April. Dr S T Steward, ARPS., FRSA. Past-President of the Midland Counties Photographic Federation, presented each with a wristlet watch and Mrs Jones with a handbag.

At the time of this photograph Mr Barnwell and Mr Jones were employed by the English Electric Company. They came from London in 1925 and were introduced to the Society by Mr J Eymer, who was then President. In 1927 Mr Barnwell was elected to the position of Secretary of the Society, a position he still held, and Mr Jones was elected to the Committee. During the previous 25 years Mr Jones had been President of the Society five times.

After the presentations the company was entertained by Miss B Packman, Miss M McCallum, Dr D Oliver and Mr J A Nugent with Mr W Hazel at the piano. Dr J Cowan gave a film show of films that he made himself including one he had not shown before entitled “Cornish Cameos”.
