If you are looking for an interesting alternative for your historical-cultural stock photo search then Classic Picture should be on your list. The library has prepared ready-edited galleries like Fashion, Shopping, Homes and Furniture, The 50’s/60’s to help you narrow down the best photos otherwise use the general search.
Classic Picture owner Jonas Sjoberg told PhotoArchiveNews.com: “My company Classic Picture Library has been a source for historical imagery since 1995 mostly for Scandinavian publishers, but for the last year, more and more international publishers have found the archive valuable. We hold the physical archive of more photographers and archives from closed-down publishing companies. The originals range from glass plate negatives and original prints.”
As an introduction to what lies behind the collection read Jonas’ blog post on photographer Kristoffersson.
