South West Image Bank

clip_image002This website will be useful for those with ancestors in the South West of England. As the name suggests the archive is of images of this part of England. I suspect that most genealogists will head for the Galleries where you can chose from Local Photographers, Local Business, Topical or Quick Links. I chose “Local Photographers” where you can chose from either William Gilhen or Gordon Sparks and then from a county or “other” section and then work your way through the images available for viewing online. Once you have found something of interest then it is possible to purchase a copy. A postcard size copy is £1.50 plus postage.
