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

Trial access to Colonial Africa in Official Statistics, 1821-1953

Sarah Gilmore31 January 2020

UCL has trial access to Colonial Africa in Official Statistics, 1821-1953, from British Online Archives, until 29th February 2020. To access off-site please use Desktop@UCL Anywhere  .

Colonial Africa in Official Statistics, 1821-1953 covers 132 of African history in statistics. The late nineteenth century ‘Scramble for Africa’ saw European colonialist powers carve up the African continent between themselves. Great Britain controlled the largest portion of territory, with its Colonial Regulations requiring an ‘Annual Blue Book’ to be transmitted from each colony to the British Colonial Office. The Blue Book was an attempt to standardise statistical reports, primarily covering economic development as well as demographic, ecclesiastical and public records.

This collection contains Blue Books and other archival material from 13 British colonies and protectorates in Africa dating 1821-1953. The standardised nature of the Blue Books enables comparisons to be drawn geographically (between colonies), and over time on issues from colonial economic practice to education and hospitals.
