Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Photo Archive: People's Collection Wales

A new photo archive, run by both the National Museum and the National Library of Wales, is now available online. This bilingual site, which has a collection of over 38,000 items, shows how the high streets in Wales looked before they came to be dominated by national chain stores.

Organisers of the collection are hoping people in villages, towns and cities across Wales will upload content to help reflect the social changes on the nation’s high streets. You can view the archive here.
