Picture Post Historical Archive (Gale)

Description The Picture Post Historical Archive comprises the complete archive of the Picture Post from its first issue in 1938 to its last in 1957 - all digitized from originals in full colour.
Picture Post provides a fascinating snapshot of British life from the 1930s to the 1950s, with thousands of photos of ordinary people doing ordinary things from boys rolling a tyre, to a view of a postwar bedsit, to young women on a rollercoaster all caught in a single moment in time.
