Help with photos

Photographs make a great contribution to this site. They spark the memories of other people, and give us a glimpse into life in the past.

We're keen for contributors to include photos with their memories, and aim to make it easy for you to do this. But please ensure that you have permission to use the photos you are adding to the website.

You can add the photo to the website yourself, but you'll need a digital copy of the photo. You can get this by scanning the photo or taking a digital photograph.

Photos should be in these file formats: JPG, BMP, PNG, TIF and GIF and should be smaller than 5mb in size.

Or, we can load the photos for you if you send them to us.

Do put some supporting information with the photo so that people without specific knowledge can use and enjoy the image: when it was taken (if you can't quite remember, then something approximate such as 'early 1970s' will do), what it shows, who any people may be, where it was taken, who took the image.
