The People’s Archive is our evolving gallery and archive documenting and preserving photographs sent in to us by the public.
We have received hundreds of images from the public since the project began in 2017. These images are an invaluable resource that document and highlight working class communities, education, industry, leisure and the passions of everyday people living and working in Britain.
Our aim is to produce an interactive archive and map that documents everyday life in Britain before the rapid rise of technology, smart phones and social media.
As well as our online archive we will be exhibiting the photos throughout the UK and ultimately in our first gallery space/community hub which we hope to set up in 2020.
Please contact us if you have any images that you would like to submit to the archive.
As a volunteer led resource we rely on funding to maintain and run our archive for future generations.
