Sarah Gilmore27 August 2020

UCL has trial access to Picture Post Historical Archive, 1938-1957 until 25th September 2020.

The Picture Post Historical Archive comprises the complete archive of the Picture Post from its first issue in 1938 to its last in 1957—all digitized from originals in full colour.

Picture Post’s innovative use of photo-journalism captured the imagination of the British people, with readership at its peak estimated at 80% of the population. In the era before television, it became the window on the world for ordinary people, bringing the major social and political issues of the day into popular consciousness. This resource provides a fascinating snapshot of British life from the 1930s to the 1950s, with thousands of photos of ordinary people doing ordinary things—from boys rolling a tyre, to a view of a postwar bedsit, to young women on a rollercoaster—all caught in a single moment in time
