You can search for images like this one on our catalogue. Here’s how:

  • Hit “Start.” You’ll find yourself on the “Search Catalogue” page. You’re in the right place.
  • In the grey box use the right-hand drop-down menu to limit your search “by material type” to “Pictures and Photographs” and then enter a keyword search as usual. You’ll get a list of images matching your search, many of which can be viewed online.
  • Just click on the entry you want to see – if the image is available online you’ll see a link, “View the photograph,” at the bottom of the full listing.  E voilà!
