About Us

Our fascinating and intriguing historical images are easy to search for genealogy, historical studies and creative projects. We aim to find the location for as many images as possible so that the context of the original picture can be mapped and better understood. It's all part of our vision to make their history accessible to new audiences. 

Our images include street scenes, landscapes and portraits from the earliest days of photography until 50 years ago.  They come from the original print photographs, negatives,  slides or real-photo postcards. They are often donated, rescued or unlocked here for the first time.

Copyright status is diligently checked to ensure they can be reused, but please contact us if you believe you have a better claim and we will investigate.

Lots more information is available in the links and blog pages below,  or contact us using the form at the end of this page.
