Here’s a great resource – launched this week, the archives-portal from German photo giant Picture Alliance.

This new section of the pa site gives a comprehensive insight into their historical content. Their photo editors have researched the most important topics, selected historical collections, scanned further images and compiled them in the portal. It takes you on a time travel through the GDR or the Federal Republic and takes a look back at the 1968 student movement. The selections not only provide insights into economy, politics, science, disasters, wars or attacks, but also into everyday life and leisure, culture, fashion, sports, traditions, travel and the world of royals and celebrities. In addition, selected picture icons and their photographers are shown as well as funny archive treasures.

• Dpa Picture-Alliance GmbH is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the German Press Agency dpa 

• Since 1949 dpa’s photographers have been capturing events in Germany every day. ‘The unique archive in Frankfurt is a complete testimony of time of inestimable value.’ 14 million negatives, slides and prints document all important historical events, significant personalities and social developments.
