Please note:

  • Counties: Show Modern Counties Within this Archive we use the county listings as defined in 1974, because this fits better with the classification of historic material. However, if you would prefer to view the modern-day equivalent county names you can switch between the two using this button.
    Modern counties include local unitary authorities and county names, so bear this in mind when browsing.
  • Coverage: In England, Scotland and Wales, all locations listed are included in the coverage of our maps, but only those names highlighted in blue have photos. Coverage in Ireland and other countries is more limited.
  • Search by Subject matter: In the search form at the top of this page, you can enter a subject (e.g. "church"), but this only searches for your subject in the titles of photographs, so if you dont find what you are looking for its worth looking the photos for likely locations, or asking our archivist who may be able to help.
