Photographs and Posters
We hold two key photographic collections:
- The Manchester Local Image Collection provides a unique photographic record of Manchester, its people, streets and buildings from a period stretching well over 100 years. Our full collection of over 80,000 images is available online at the Greater Manchester Lives website. Just click the 'Only items with images' button.
- The Documentary Photography Archive (DPA) is a unique archive held at the Greater Manchester County Record Office which documents the life of the Greater Manchester region.
- A selection of images from Documentary Photography Archive collection can now be viewed on our Flickr photostream
- The Manchester Central Library poster shop is now live. Visit our shop in Central Library or online to buy gifts including cards, postcards and calendars based on our collections.
