Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Images of a rich heritage goes online ...

No kidding, but we have news of yet another photo archive going online.

The public are now able to search online a catalogue describing more than a million historical photographs and documents relating to England’s historic buildings and archaeological sites held by the National Monuments Record (NMR), English Heritage’s public archive. This includes images, plans, drawings, reports and publications covering England’s archaeology, architecture, social and local history.

All held on a database which can now be accessed and searched online here.

Until now, these searches had to be done in person at the NMR’s public search rooms in Swindon. Using a range of search terms, users can discover whether English Heritage holds any items in its archive relevant to the topic they are interested in, mainly photos, but also including maps, plans or reports.

Whose complaining ? - Not me !
