Collections - Photograph Collection Listings

The museum contains many thousands of photographs - the oldest date back to the Crimean War of 1854-56.  Not every image presently appears on our website, and for various reasons it is unlikely that every single photograph will.  Some images are of poor quality, are duplicates or for copyright and other reasons will not appear.  Whilst they will not appear in the photo gallery information about them will still be listed.

Please do check the 'Photo Gallery' of this website.
