The College Archives include a wide-ranging collection of photographs, prints and drawings of the College buildings, alumni, students and events. Some of these images were copied as a part of a project to celebrate the College’s 125th Anniversary in 2008 and a digitisation project has now been set up to digitise the most popular images. The majority of those images recently digitised are of College sports teams, dating from 1886. Much needed conservation of the original material is also in process.
A selection of the most popular images is now available as part of a Picture Gallery to provide a representation of the entire collection. Please contact the Archivist to ask about other similar images.
