Buckinghamshire photographs searching tips

To list photographs for a single parish, select the parish from the list on the simple search page and click the Search button next to the list of parishes.

For a more precise selection of photographs, enter words or phrases in one or more of the fields on the advanced search page and click the Search button.

For example, if you wanted to locate photographs about brick-making, enter brick as the Activity and click on Search.   If you are interested in brick-making in the Buckland Common area, you can also enter Buckland for the place. If you cannot find what you are looking for first time around, try searching with fewer words, or search on fewer items. We do not recommend doing a blanket search with no conditions, as this will take some time and give you a very long list.

Whichever method you choose, you will be presented with a list of summaries for the located photographs. Click on a summary to view the photograph and its associated details.

Where the period for a photograph includes a pair of dates, e.g. 1900=1909, this indicates a range of dates for the photograph. Ranges usually run from 00 to 09. Because of this, searches for years ending in 00 or 09 will locate more photographs than other specific years.

Please note that the two location methods are exclusive. Selecting a parish from the left hand list has no effect on the selective search on the right, and vice versa.
