Digitising the Archive

Our digitisation project has been a huge challenge, undertaken at enormous cost, without public funding. We have used state of the art technology to ensure we have captured the very finest details from every subject.

The original materials worked with have covered the gamut: hand-written ledgers and collodion glass plates, platinum, albumen & gelatin-silver prints, small format film and most things in between.

Even with the best technology and processes, handling so many delicate and varied materials has made this a slow, laborious and complex task.
