Archive / Photos

The Centre’s large photographic archive contains in the region of 100,000 images ranging from official portraits to family snapshots. We are awaiting an opportunity to catalogue the collection online, but at the moment the only complete listing is only available in the Centre.

Reproductions of individual photographs can be arranged. Rates for this depend on the size of the photograph and the media on which it is required. For researchers from broadcasters or production companies there is a small access charge. For further information please contact the archivist.
