Commercial use of historical images

collage 2 LR
Our family archive of more than 12,000 historical photographs, maps and chromolithographs is available for commercial use under a licensing scheme. Website designers, publishers, advertisers, TV companies etc. regularly use our images. Licensing arrangements are handled by Alamy, one of the world’s leading commercial picture libraries.

You can browse our images by clicking here. This takes you to a search box (beneath our company name, not the one at the top of the page) where you can enter a place name (city, town or village), topic or theme ….. anything really that’s relevant to the image you’re looking for. For instance, if you search for ‘London’ you’ll find 550 images; ‘war’ 400; ‘seaside’ 160; ‘farming’ 150; ‘railway’ 450 and so on. You can refine your search by adding more detail, such as ‘London horse bus’.

Please note that licences are not available for private / personal use.
