Mary Evans partners with British Pathé

We are delighted to announce that we now represent the Time to Remember Stills Collection from the iconic newsreel archive British Pathé. This specially curated selection of the best and most relevant images from this unique collection will be available through the UK's leading historical image specialist.

Considered the finest newsreel archive in the world, British Pathé is a priceless resource of historical imagery. It's Time to Remember Stills Collection represents the best of its archival content, covering the years 1896-1945. Unrivalled in their historical and cultural significance, the stills are a never-before seen record of key moments, earth-shattering events, famous figures, as well as fashions and fads through the decades.

British Pathé camera operators were present around the world to record the most significant moments in history for cinema audiences in the UK. There are scenes from both World Wars, VE Day celebrations, the General Strike of 1926, the Coronation of King George VI, the fire at Crystal Palace and the Hindenburg disaster.

Theatre and entertainment is well represented, as well as royal tours, elections, travel and transport. With cameras rolling at sporting events such as the 1936 Berlin Olympics, or at the Derby when suffragette Emily Wilding Davison was knocked down and killed by the king's horse, the stills from these and many other films frequently capture angles or details previously unseen through photography of the time.
