St Helen’s ArchivePreserving the past for the future

Photographs & Illustrations

The large and ever growing collection of photographs in the St Helen’s Archive originates from many quarters. Some are brought over by touring teams or are gifted by members of the public. Others originate from the studios of ‘photographic artists’ long since disappeared from our towns and cities. The recording of these frozen moments in time by the archive team is a slow and careful task. Great care is taken to preserve the images for future generations to enjoy. In some instances little is known about the subject matter, a situation that can always be remedied by their presence on an accessible hub like the St Helen’s Archive Website. While many photographs are in excellent condition, some images are so badly deteriorated that a digitally enhanced version sits alongside the original to allow the viewer to understand the information hidden in the original. We have been fortunate in being gifted many images covering a variety of aspects of sport and in a variety of formats, including large format and even glass negatives, from which we can record a positive image. We even have in storage pre 1914 copper plate photographic printers’ blocks of the type used in reproducing photographs in news print. High resolution files are made and retained on every image that we process and can be made available on request.
