About us

Picture Sheffield is a non-profit cultural service funded by Sheffield City Council. It contains over 100,000 images of Sheffield and the surrounding area from the unrivalled collections held by Sheffield City Council’s Archive and Local Studies Library.

We are continually digitising photographs and documents and adding them to the library - over 5,000 additional images are uploaded each year.

We are grateful to everyone who generously donates their images, or their time and money, to make Picture Sheffield so comprehensive.

All income generated from sales and licensing is used to offset the costs of providing this service.

Please note that Sheffield City Council is not responsible and does not condone the sentiment contained within the images, they are reproduced as factual records.
