All RPS members are invited to join an expedition to York on 1st October 2019 as guests of the Yorkshire Philosophical Society (YPS).  This event includes a curator led walk through an exhibition of Hill and Adamson images, taken  at a conference which took place in York 175 years ago, which will be on display in Museum Gardens throughout September and October, a visit to York Explore (formerly York Central Library) to meet the Curator to see a selection of their archived images, concluding with an opportunity to eat in York and an evening  lecture by Anne Lyden.

This event is part of a programme of events celebrating the YPS bicentennial in 2022 and is a collaboration with York Museums Trust and York Explore.
