History and Heritage working hand in hand - Mary Evans and English Heritage

Mary Evans Picture Library, the UK's leading specialist source of historical images, has announced that it will promote sales of some of the fantastic photographs kept by the National Monuments Record, the public archive of English Heritage.

English Heritage is best known for its historic properties, but it also looks after over 10 million photographs of England's past, many of which document social history. The involvement of Mary Evans will enable this content to become available to a wider audience, and to make it more accessible through additional keywording and Mary Evans' well-established global network of agents.

Paul Brown, Managing Director, Mary Evans Picture Library, said: "We are delighted to be working with such a prestigious collection. This fits well with our ethos to make history in all its forms available to a worldwide audience and preserve cultural heritage for the future."

For a taste of some of these amazing views of Britain's social history, check out this selection by John Gay, one of the most respected photographers of the mid-20th century, who took beautiful pictures of England's people, buildings, animals and landscapes between 1936 and 1996.
