Abstract
One hundred years ago, optical workers of London assembled to discuss a variety of topics in optics. This paper provides an overview of The 1905 Proceedings, a discussion of the state of optical design in this period based on relevant books of the period, and an introduction to a self-published autobiography of a worker active in the period that was found on The Internet.
