Mary Evans Picture Library 60th Anniversary

Celebrating 60 Years of History

2024 marks our sixtieth birthday. That’s sixty whole years of supplying the very finest historical images to clients far and wide.

When we discussed how to mark this momentous milestone, we decided to turn the camera on ourselves and make a little movie. We wanted to tell the story of how the business began and where we are now, and of course show off our beautiful library. We hope this does the trick.

So, if you’ve ever wondered what goes on inside our building, how we operate – and what we look like (at least some of us) – then click the video link below. We hope you enjoy it.

Mary Evans at 60
