So efficient and easy to work with.

Libby Earland, Hodder & Stoughton

The personal and friendly service a smaller picture library like Mary Evans provides is invaluable to me as a very busy picture editor in book publishing.

Lily Richards, Random House.

You are the very best picture library going. Your speed is very greatly appreciated.

Paul Ford, Isle of Man Post Office.

Mary Evans is now my new favourite picture research resource!

Kate Macdonald, Handheld Press

The work you and your colleagues do at Mary Evans is immensely valuable to both students, academics and people of all walks of life interested in history.

Mathias Hatleskog Tjonn, University of Oslo.

This is so perfect, thank you very much. Pics arrived and credits noted. A terrific library and excellent organisation too. So nice to know you are there. Thank you again for all your exceptional help.

Sally Smith, author.

Would just like to say a big thank you for finding us some fantastic images - you've made what I thought was going to be a difficult task a lot easier.

Matt Bateman, Department of Health website.

The Mary Evans Picture Library is a wonderful resource for a picture-hungry publication like ours and I am so glad I discovered it early on in my tenure.

Dr. Stephen O'Connor, Editor, The Revolution Papers

I must say the speed with which you guys operate has been a great relief…and to have an archive chasing me rather than me chasing an archive makes for a most refreshing change.

Sean Willcock, author and academic.

You have been a pleasure to work with. I will keep Mary Evans in mind for future projects.

Gail Jarrow, author.

It is still amazingly important that a collection sits within an archive that cherishes the historical value and not just the monetary value of photos.

Laurence Coss, BBC.

Mary Evans is an absolute gold mine of historic content with so much commercial appeal. We love mining the gems…and working with the ever knowledgeable friendly team.

Andrew Humphries, Memory Lane Media Ltd.
Mary Evans Picture Library has a particularly unique product, and their picture researchers know how to unearth the most obscure requests from the archive. When I'm in a hurry with deadlines to meet, I just give them a call and off they go like bloodhounds!
Rebecca Hawtrey, The Field

Many thanks both for checking this out and for such a kindly phrased and courteous message.

Dr Robert Bud FRHS, Emeritus Keeper, The Science Museum
I would also like to say that whenever I need something of yours, and usually at short notice, I find everyone at Mary Evans to be most helpful and extremely efficient.
Stephen Nelson, Council of British Archaeology Magazine

We absolutely love the images from your collection, and the other researchers and I have found your library to be the best organized we've worked with. We've been very impressed with the amount of detailed information attached to each picture.
