Welcome to Picture the Past

Welcome to the North East Midland Photographic Record 'Picture the Past' website. This project is jointly managed by the local authorities of Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham, and Nottinghamshire with financial assistance from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

'Picture the Past' aims to conserve and make publicly accessible the photographic heritage of the North East Midlands, thus enabling people to see the richness and diversity of the area's photographic collections.

Many images in the collection are irreplaceable - digitising protects the originals from wear and tear and enables users all over the world to view the collection via the Internet.

Images on this website may be downloaded for personal use only. Photographic quality prints in various sizes can be ordered securely on-line.

Some of the images in the collection have little or no details and we welcome any further information that you have - please click here to view them (click here).

Don't forget that new images are constantly being added to the database, so check back frequently.

We hope you enjoy using the website and find the images you require. Thank you for your interest.
