Our photographs show people, landscapes, animals and machines. They include top quality photo-journalism and rare works by talented amateurs. We have a wide range of illustrations, footage and artworks, and historical photographs of the local area.
Within these, and other smaller archives, are photographs not listed below. If you are interested in photographs from a particular place, person or subject, you can use our online search catalogue to search for these. Simply enter “PH” (in inverted commas) followed by your search term. Any photographs we have catalogued with that search term will appear.
We offer professional copying services and print on demand at reasonable rates. You can also obtain licences to use much of our content. Simply contact us with the reference and description of the image(s) you are interested in.
