Mary Evans Picture Library are celebrating Moods this week in their ongoing Collection Crossover deep-dives into their vast photo archives.

We’ve got all the feels this week as we approach our archive sideways and offer you some conceptual ideas based on moods. Finding historical subjects on our site is pretty straightforward; if you want the Battle of Hastings, then that’s what you type in. But looking for something more conceptual can require some lateral thinking. We’re always here to help interpret your requests with our free research service, and we hope these selections might offer some inspiration and direction when you’re trying to illustrate that difficult-to-grasp idea. This is also a cunning way to show you the range and diversity of our collection which spans travel posters to street photography and much more besides. We’ve chosen four moods to put you…in the mood. Take your pick depending on your frame of mind.
