Welcome to the online archive

Using photographs, postcards, maps, memorabilia, prints, and posters from the collections of Wakefield Council Libraries, local groups and individuals, this online archive of images of Wakefield and District and related areas shows the diversity of life in our area both past and present. The Archive is a freely available valuable learning resource for use by all ages and abilities.

This archive was originally funded by a Big Lottery Fund (previously New Opportunities Fund (NOF)) grant and is published and cared for by Wakefield Council Libraries.
