'A short time ago a number of leading citizens of Ilkeston conferred with each other on the advisability of forming a club for the purpose of promoting and furthering the interests of painting, sketching, photography, wood-carving, botany, geology and kindred subjects. The outcome of it was the formation of what is called the Ilkeston Arts, Camera and Field Club ... The inauguration of the Club took place on Friday night in the shape of a conversazione held in the Town Hall. There was a large response of ladies and gentlemen to the invitation of the committee, the hall being well filled, and the greatest interest being manifested in the proceedings ...' [Heanor Advertiser 16 January 1903]
