Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Photo Archive: Public Record Office of Northern Ireland

The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) has made an incredible archive of historic family photographs available online through the free photo-sharing website Flickr. The historic photographic collection includes over fifty years of wedding and family portraits taken between 1900 and 1952 by the Allison Photographic Studios in Armagh, an especially rich resource for genealogists with connections in County Armagh, South Down and also in County Monaghan in the Irish Republic.


About 200 digital images are currently available, browsable alphabetically by family surname. The remainder of the photos will continue to be transferred from fragile glass plate negatives into digital format until all 1530 images have been posted on Flickr.


The press release is here, and you can access the archive from here.
