New Mary Evans Picture Library website

Mary Evans new site

Mary Evans Picture Library press release – 23 September, 2021.

Mary Evans Picture Library, the leading source of historical and cinema imagery, is delighted to announce a substantial revamp of its website.

The new site, which you can find at, has a contemporary look and feel, while maintaining the ethos and traditions of the library that our clients have come to love and respect over nearly six decades.

Images, at both thumbnail and preview size, are larger than they were, and new functionality includes the ability for clients to access their downloads from the preceding three months, and to pay outstanding invoices using a secure online payments system.

The Artists, Collections, Celebrities and Anniversaries Pages have each undergone a major overhaul to better show off the breadth and depth of the the collection, and more easily provide clients with ideas for projects and stories.

The hugely popular microsite, Poems and Pictures, which is now home to more than 300 poems, each inspired by images in our collection, has undergone a substantial overhaul, making it easier to browse poems and to find poems by poets’ name. We continue to add a new poem every week.

The new site also includes a number of enhanced security features to keep clients’ data, and our images, even more secure than they were before.

Paul Brown, Managing Director at Mary Evans said, “This new website gives our clients, and anyone interested in historical and cinema imagery, a perfect window through which to view the now more than three million images available at”
