About UK, Historical Photographs and Prints, 1704-1989

This Collection

This huge variety of prints and photographs provide a great resource of images, capturing some of the most defining moments in history, as well as displays of everyday life.

The main collection from which images are drawn is the Hulton Collection, former archive of the British photojournalistic magazine Picture Post. Originally created for publication in the Great British press, most images contain the original printed caption on the back, with detailed information often including names, places and locations of the photograph or print subject.

Remember to scroll right when you find an image, to see the caption written on the back.
