PHOTOGRAPHIC ARCHIVE
The Photographic Archive holds more than 60,000 images relating to Orkney and it's people, spanning more than one hundred years, with the earliest dating from the mid-nineteenth century. The images are a priceless record of changes that were occurring throughout the UK as well as in Orkney. They show changes in the working and social lives of the people, changes in farming methods, the effects of two World Wars and the huge influx of military personnel, industries that have largely disappeared and much more. The Archive holds examples of the work of many photographers. Our main collections are:
