Bradford Museums' Collections

Bradford Museums' Collections

Throughout the history of Bradford's museum services, individuals and groups have donated small collections of negatives and photographic prints. These pictures, taken over the past one hundred years, give glimpses of life in the Bradford District often overlooked by other sources, and explore the area's links with other parts of the world.

In 1983 Bradford Heritage Recording Unit was established with the particular aim of creating an audio and photographic archive which reflected all aspects of everyday life and leisure in and around Bradford. The collection contains photographs copied from family albums, collected from newspaper and commercial photographers, or taken by photographers working for BHRU between 1983 and 2003.

The collection reflects Bradford's industrial and multi-cultural heritage.
