The first move towards the formation of the Doncaster Camera Club was a letter in the Doncaster Gazette in November 1893. This resulted in an invitation to join the Doncaster Microscopical Society which used photography and included it in their programme.
The photographers accepted this invitation but soon found it did not answer their needs. Under the leadership of Frank Moat, 12 photographers met, at 2pm on Sunday 14th April 1895, at 10 High Street, the home of Henry Percy, a gent’s outfitter and amateur photographer. They decided to form the Doncaster Camera Club and chose Frank Moat as secretary.
One of the members offered a meeting place and a programme was quickly drawn up. In the early years every talk to the club was given by a member.
