We’re continually cataloguing new items from our collections and adding the descriptions to the website. Over the last few months the following catalogue entries have been added. The reference numbers (shown in brackets) will help you when searching.

Early Photographic Print Collection (RBO01)

This collection includes some of the oldest photography of the historic buildings of England. There are some 12,000 photographic prints, pieces of original artwork, printed illustrations and engravings in the collection, with the vast majority of material dating from the late 19th century to the early 20th century, with some later additions.

Bedford Lemere & Co (HBL01)

Over 1000 more Bedford Lemere & Co images from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries have been catalogued. The main subjects covered by the collection include country houses, ships, street scenes and industrial themes, such as warehouses and factories.

Julius Knoop Album (JKA01)

Thirty early black and white photographs of textile warehouses, mills and homes in the Manchester area, relating to the De Jersey Company run by Carl Julius Gerhard Knoop (1822-1893).

RCHME and English Heritage Photography (EHC01)

A wide range of new work by English Heritage photographers has been added to the catalogue, illustrating subjects as diverse as Post–War Architects, Places of Worship at Risk and Egypt in England. At the same time photographs of listed buildings across England taken in 1988 by the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England (RCHME) photographers, have been fully catalogued for the first time. These cover over 400 buildings, many of which were at risk of substantial alteration or demolition at the time.

English Heritage Plans (EHC01/022)

Cataloguing of plans and drawing relating to English Heritage sites continues, with Easby Abbey, Waltham Abbey, Dover Castle and Titchfield Abbey newly completed along, with a range of sites along Hadrian’s Wall.
