We're creating the old photos of the future
In 25, 50 or 100 years from now, these images will seem like the 'old' photos of today do to us.
There are currently over 5,000 images of Yorkshire in this archive and we're adding more every week. Click on any photo for details.
The project started in Hebden Bridge in March 2015. A small group of amateur photographers decided to carry on the photographic tradition of Alice Longstaff (who sadly died in 1992). She, in turn, carried on the tradition of her predecessors, resulting in a collection of images going all the way back to the 1890's. You can see the full story here.
You can search for images in the archive simply by entering names, places, events or objects in the search box at the top of this page, by the tags on an item here, or search through all the details on an image here.
Clicking on any image will take you to the information for that image, including its location on a map.

About this site:
This is the publicly viewable and searchable face of our Archive - every image you see has an associated photographic negative, carefully stored, that will last for hundreds of years. It's designed with future generations in mind - to allow them to search and find the images that interest them.
We recommend that you study the "How to search" page for instructions on locating subjects, places, people and things in the archive.
Note: All images on the site are restricted to 800px on the longest edge - we keep high resolution tiff files of all images for reproduction and licensing.
