Photographs and artworks

The Society’s Picture Library holds over half a million photographs, artworks, negatives, lantern slides and albums dating from around 1830.

We offer a rich source of imagery, from a golden age of travel and exploration, to modern geographical depictions.

Historic images range from the great Antarctic adventures of Scott and Shackleton to the pioneering journeys of Livingstone, Baker, Speke and Burton.
