Image Galleries Introduction
These image galleries contain digital copies of photographic slides, negatives and photographic prints held in the archives of the City of Winchester Trust which are held in Google Albums. Over at least 10 years a number of specific collections have been created usually based on the person or organisation that donated them. These Earlier Collections are still available and can be displayed and searched etc.
More recently a complete 'Total Collection' has now been produced. This contains all the digitised images in the earlier collections and a new collection of photographs donated by Andrew Rutter. In addition it includes all the images held in the Archive photograph stores and finally all the images held in the Box Files mainly holding paper archives. It therefore holds all the images held in the Archives and this totals about 9,000 images.
The Total Image Description List is a pdf which contains the annonoations of every image with a link (These are still under development) directly to the image (Note the pdf contains 9,000 images so will take a while to load). The third column is an indicator of where the image can be found in the Archives. The List of descriptions can be browsed and the pdf search facility used to search the descriptions.To search the pdf annotations the pdf search box should be used by keying Control+F if you are using Adobe Reader.
This is a collection of over 9,000 photographs held in the City of Winchester Archives. Some of the photographs go back to the early days of photography in Winchester, taken in the 1900s and then many taken particulary in the 1950s onwards. The photographs include many topics including the historic core of Winchester. All the streets and roads within the historic city wall have been included in this collection as well as many other topics.
This large collection has been subdivided into about 100 albums. These are divided into two categories 'Streets' and 'other'. These albums can be accessed via the links below:-
