Have you seen The Picture Post Historical Archive? It’s a full digital reproduction of an iconic British newspaper published between 1938 and 1957. It’s a valuable record of those years in all sorts of areas:
- History and culture: the everyday lives of all levels of society in the mid-20th century;

- Art & photography: Famous photographers worked for the publication including Bill Brandt.
The Picture Post Historical Archive will appeal to anyone studying, teaching or with an interest in twentieth century history. It’s also visually stunning – I challenge you not to fall in love with it!
