The Picture the Past website has looked the same since it was launched over ten years ago so we decided it was time it was updated and given a new, smarter look. We haven't made any changes to the way the site works or search methods so you will still be able to find your favourite images. We've just given it a bit of a 'makeover'.
We do hope you like the new appearance and, of course, we're always happy to hear your thoughts on the website.
Thank you for visiting us, your support is what keeps the project going.
The libraries and museums of Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire have in their collections, hundreds of thousands of historic photographs, slides, glass plates, postcards and engravings recalling the history of the local communities over the last hundred years and more.
Now the local authorities, with the help of the Heritage Lottery Fund, have made it possible to search all these images on the internet, via this unique website.
Did you know we produce a great range of products that you can have personalised with your favourite images. These can be ordered in the usual way by adding them to your ‘shopping basket’ as you browse through the image collection.
