Picture Post Historical Archive now available

Following a successful trial we are delighted to announce that we have now purchased the Picture Post Historical Archive. Access is available now and it will appear in the library catalogue and LibGuides (including our A-Z list of databases) very soon.

The Picture Post Historical Archive contains every issue of the pioneering photojournalism newspaper. High-principled yet entertaining, and featuring a whole stable of extraordinarily talented photographers, Picture Post (1938-1957) was read by an estimated 80% of the British population at its peak. It is an essential resource for studying international social and political issues of the day, and how they were brought into popular consciousness.
