This in from PAN reader Marc Russell at the NewsUK photo archive – on the launch of their Twitter feed which will highlight the ongoing work at the photo archive including insights to The Times, The Sunday Times and The Sun archives.
“Hi Will – attached are a couple of pictures recently found in the archive: Winston Churchill in the grounds of Number 10 Downing Street in 1941 and a group of children in Sierra Leone in 1961.
The archives of NewsUK are launching their own Twitter feed on July 1st 2015. It is to be called @NewsUKArchives and covers the archive collections of The Times, The Sunday Times and The Sun newspapers. The collection holds over 50 million pictures, articles and documents and @NewsUKArchives will be a contact point for image buyers to have access to this fascinating collection. The Content Specialists at @NewsUKArchives are uncovering new material every day and unearthing gems that haven’t been seen before. Please follow @NewsUKArchives for daily updates. There will be a blog to follow, which will all link in with the Twitter feed.
We’re finding amazing images in the collection and identifying lost material every day. It really is an amazing source for creative’s and picture buyers for magazines, newspapers, etc.”
