Picture Post Collection

Fascinating snapshots of Britain and the world in the 1930s, 40s, & 50s

First issued in in 1938 this is a collection of over 1000 prints from the Picture Post archives. Picture Post  photographers took images to fill the pages of a weekly magazine including light-hearted and humorous stories and major social issues, both domestic and international. Once read by close to half the UK population the magazine’s circulation reached a staggering 1.7 million copies within weeks of its launch. Its photojournalists pioneered new forms of story telling under the editorship of Stefan Lorrant and later Tom Hopkinson. Included here are photos of ordinary people doing ordinary things taken by Bert Hardy, Felix H Man, Grace Robertson, Bill Brandt, Kurt Hutton, John Chillingworth, Thurston Hopkins and others whose innovative use of photojournalism captured the imagination of the British people.

Our pictures are available as a range of Wall Art and Photo Gifts including Framed Prints, Posters, Canvas Prints, Jigsaw Puzzles and other Photo Gifts - all professionally made and delivered to your door quickly and securely
