British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

No! - it's not about this year's Eurovision Song Contest. And I know it's not quite British too. But what early photography archives do not include anything British?

This online, non-commercial, photo library has over 5,000 photographs, most of them from four main collections: the archives of Narmin Tahirzade, the photo archive of Adalat Tahirzade, the Institute of Manuscripts and photos from private family collections. For example, the material from Azerbaijan's Institute of Manuscripts includes collections of rare photographs belonging to Salman Mumtaz (1884-1941) and collections from prominent figures in Azerbaijani literature and the arts. Photographs from all three major collections have been chosen by professional researchers and are accompanied by information about their history and the people and places shown.

The online archive can be found here.
