Picture Armadale

Picture Armadale has moved!

The version of Picture Armadale - our online historical photo collection - which existed as a stand-alone site from 2012 to 2017 has been closed down.

An integrated 'Picture Armadale' is now part of the standard Library catalogue, meaning that you can find all the local history images (and more of the Birtwistle historical collections) in the catalogue - a feature that was not previously available.

Download a short step-by-step PDF guide to finding images on the Library catalogue.

Start searching the photographs and be amazed at the transformations in our places, people, vehicles and fashions. Many of the images you find can be downloaded and saved for research purposes.

If you think some images in your own collection show how the City of Armadale used to be – whether it’s a snapshot of a picnic at your local park, a streetscape from years ago or a group photo – there are always opportunities to share them.
