|Collection of the week: *NEW* British Pathé|
We've a brand new collection to shout about this week in the form of the Time to Remember Stills Collection from the iconic newsreel archive British Pathé.
Considered the finest of its type in the world, British Pathé is a priceless resource of historical imagery, with the stills collection representing the best of its archival content, covering the years 1896-1945. Unrivalled in their historical and cultural significance, the images offer 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 travelled the world in order 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.
We've spent time curating and honing down the collection to bring you 15,000 of the very best images, a selection of which you can view here.
We hope you're continuing to enjoy our regular Collection of the Week emails. Do drop us a line if you need help with anything picture-related by emailing email@example.com or calling 020 8318 0034.
