Challenges of a Photography Curator: Photography. Print media and the Daily Herald
Dr Geoff Belknap, Head Curator, National Science and Media Museum

One of the highlights of the National Science and Media Museum is the Daily Herald photographic archive which contains more than three million images taken between 1911 and the newspaper’s closure in the late 1960’s.

The photos in the archive capture major social and political events such as the Spanish Civil War, unemployment and hunger marches alongside images of many sporting events.
