An unparalleled collection of the finest architectural, garden and interiors photography and writing since 1897.
The archive houses photographic collections of historic buildings from the British Isles, Europe and the Americas, including many taken by photographic pioneers such as Frederick Evans, Charles Latham and Alfred E. Henson.
We also have extensive collections of working animals and portraits of prominent figures in British life, from vets to artisans to politicians.
Only a small selection of our archive is currently digitised.
With this in mind, research (within reason) is free.
