Picture Post Historical Archive, 1938-1957

British magazine founded in 1938 by a group of mainland European photographers who had fled Europe to escape fascism, the Picture Post had an influence that far outlived its brief and tumultuous history. In her entry on the magazine for the Oxford Companion to the Photograph (New York: Oxford University Press, 2005), historian Amanda Hopkinson describes the magazine's back issues as a "social history of Britain over two decades".

The Daily Mail Historical Archive also includes issues from the Atlantic Edition (1923-1931), which was published for cruise ship passengers.
