PICTURE SHEFFIELD

This is the council's archive of rare and old photographs that's well worth a look

There's some fantastic stuff on there to see and we were inspired by some of the pictures on the site

The site is less than half, nearer a third, of the whole collection. The work done so far was thanks to external grants, which were used up some time ago, and so far no more is forthcoming. And of course the collection is growing all the time! It would be fabulous to have access to the whole collection. Anyone got a few hundred thousand to spare?

This is indeed, a fine resource, but ... ever tried to find stuff ? My main aim with the Pubs was to create an alphabetical list of Pubs, with keeper, with links to photos when available - the same could be applied to Churches, Mills, Steel works, Stations, Trades - just takes a little effort.

The effort may drive you mad but it's worth it - honest !

No special computer skills required, just cut and paste the address for any interesting photos you find at PictureSheffield, add a bit of text to describe what it is/context.
