2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the Mary Evans Picture Library.
They say:… ‘we are planning some very special events this year, including a series of open house parties at the library where guests can celebrate with staff while discovering the inner workings of the library and its fascinating collection.
An anniversary book has also been produced which looks back over the past fifty years and includes personal anecdotes and little-known facts revealing a business like no other. Produced in a limited number, 50 Years of Mary Evans Picture Library will be exclusively given away at selected times and events through the year – it could even become a collectors’ item of the future!’
‘The Mary Evans ‘Golden Jubilee’ is also an opportunity to remember and celebrate the lives of Mary and Hilary Evans, who founded the library in 1964. Without their dedication and commitment to amassing their outstanding collection, the library would not exist today and it is testament to their vision that it remains one of the few remaining independents in the industry, drawing daily on that remarkable archive to fulfil requests from customers around the world.’
