The 1859 announcement of the list of RCPS 'premiums' (the prizes in the annual competitive exhibitions) for 1860 included, for the first time, a new category in the already large class of 'Fine Arts'. This was One Pound 'for the best series of not less than 12 photographs'. The Reverend Gutteres, a talented amateur, was the winner.
