SHEFFIELD HISTORY CHAT
A huge thank you to everyone who donated to our emergency appeal to raise funds to save as much of the Tim Hale Photographic Collection as we can for Picture Sheffield. The response to the appeal has been amazing, raising several thousand pounds in just a matter of days.
We hope to buy at least some of the collection at the auction and make it available for everyone to see on Picture Sheffield.
Thank you once again.

Archives and Local Studies staff had an extremely successful day at the auction of the Tim Hale Photographic Collection yesterday. Thanks to generous public donations together with support from the Graves Trust we saved over 2,000 cards for Picture Sheffield. We secured a fantastic range of subjects including street scenes, sport, hospitals, pubs, transport, temperance, industry, Sheffield greetings cards, local elections, advertising, early aviation, World War I, schools and theatres, and many more.
We’ll be sorting through the photographs over the coming weeks - watch out for them on www.picturesheffield.com. We’ll also be arranging a display in the Central Library later in the year.
Thanks again for all your support!
