Add a touch of colour To a black & white print

Welcome to the site that offers you the opportunity to own high quality prints or blank greeting cards from genuine Victorian and Edwardian photographic slides.

Digitally reproduced from original glass lantern slides, the forerunner to the 35mm slides that we may be more familiar with, all our pictures faithfully capture a moment of times passed. The most recent being over 80 years old, and the most distant dating back to around 1860, over 150 years ago.

From sketches of the very first railways to artist impressions of Cunard’s Queen Mary. From Royal portraits to elegant ladies promenading under parasols. Every one tells its own story. There’s even a complete gallery of unique pictures of places in Scotland by George Washington Wilson, the renowned photographer to Queen Victoria, who died in 1893.

Why not browse the site and order yourself a little bit of history while you can. Click the gallery labels on the left of your screen and click the images within a gallery to view an enlargement. To order a specific picture, select the required format and size then click ‘Add to cart’.  When you have finished making your selections click ‘view cart’ to complete your purchase.
