New website!

This is a totally new site, with a fresher look, providing easier access to lists detailing the hundreds of thousands of images that are in our archives. Please take some time to have a look around and provide any feedback that you feel is warranted; we will be going through a period of ‘bedding down’ and I have no doubt that we will have over-looked one or two things! 

We have endeavoured to provide a space where enthusiasts can search and browse, raise queries and request further information, as well as purchase prints easily; hopefully this is what you will find here!  We are also planning to ensure that any additions and changes to the website are communicated rapidly through posts and our Facebook page  

Our ethos and history can be found under About us on the top menu.
