The Wyndham Camera Club:

In 1956 the Wyndham Camera Club formed with the intention of encouraging friendship and enjoyment. At first, competitions were held with members competing against one another but, as confidence and ability grew, slides were entered in outside competitions and Beatrice Johnston and Ivan Dey were successful in gaining National Honours. The Wyndham District High School dark room was used to develop and print black and white films and eventually, colour slides and the processing of Cibachrome colour prints was undertaken. Three of the original members, Beatrice Johnston, Roger Matthews and Ivan Dey, its first president, remained active in the clubs running throughout its life, however, due to declining membership the club went into recess in 1993.
