Many of the photographs are held on glass plates. Our archivists spend much time in restoring and repairing these before transferring them digitally to files where they can be stored and easily recovered when needed. Their work is important in preserving part of our national heritage. Vehicle restorers, publishers, and authors are among those who seek information and assistance for their projects. Private individuals too, who enjoy collecting photographs of old vehicles, can make online purchases. There are thousands to choose from! Visitors to the museum are invited to see archive work in progress. Please ask at the Reception Desk on arrival at the museum. For specific vehicle information, please send us your enquiries.
