East Lothian Images

Without a doubt the most requested collection in archives and local history is our image collection. It covers all aspects of life in the East Lothian and with close to 75,000 items it’s a rich local history resource.

While our image catalogue has always been available, with the help of our volunteers we are currently digitising the collection. Uploading the images will mean the collection can be viewed right across the world and with our new online payment system there is now the opportunity to purchase the majority of these images quickly and easily.

With images of school classes, galas and buildings long gone the collection is a fascinating walk down memory lane. We hold every format from glass negative to slide to digital and the collection is always expanding. If you have images you would like to donate to the archive then we would love to hear from you.
