Photograph Collection

We are currently undergoing a digitisation project and are working to make as many items in the Local History Collection available as possible, whilst being respectful of copyright, privacy and technological restrictions.

In the meantime, this page is just to whet your appetite in terms of historical photographs. More images will be added over time, so please check back regularly for all the updates.

And make sure to sign up to Bookmark, the Library's monthly e-newsletter so you don't miss anything that is happening.
