1000’s of photographs illustrating history of education, 1949-1993

I’ve created this resource guide to show just a few of the subjects illustrated by the Photographic Collection of the Architects and Buildings Branch, Ministry of Education. The catalogue for this collection is available here. Many schools are mentioned by name, to see if your school features search here , you will need to enter “ABB” in the Refno box.

Many of the photograph are under Crown Copyright, making reuse for educational purposes much simpler. If you are interested in using the collection email arch.enquiries@ioe.ac.uk to let us know.


Accurate portrait or thorough research?
