Subject Albums

To buy prints of any image featured on this website see our SWiB Forms page for instructions


Our subject galleries (below) contain images from all our collections combined.

We have based our subject classes on the approved UK Archival Thesaurus (UKAT). Some of the galleries below will have been further sub-divided into more specific themes (viz. those with multiple terms).

Example: If looking for images of railways/trams/buses/cars etc. select the 'transport' gallery.

If you are unsure as to which gallery is the right one for you, you may like to consult the UKAT website first.

To enquire about any collection or image/images featured here, to order high quality reproductions or to suggest possible subjects to be added to the list please complete our SWiB Image Search Request Form.
