About us

The Photographic Archive of Bradford Museums and Galleries is housed at Bradford Industrial Museum, Eccleshill, Bradford. It consists of more than 350,000 glass and film negatives and prints. These pages form part of a project which aims to digitise the archive in order that it can be available for all to see.

With such a vast selection of images, digitisation is a long, slow process. It was recognised at the outset that it would be a mistake to work systematically through the collection. Such a method could result in some photographic gems not seeing the light of day for many years to come.

Instead, the order of processing is enquiry and exhibition led.
