The Trust is delighted to announce that is has entered into an agreement with Mary Evans Ltd the UK’s leading historical image library with five decades of experience in supplying historical and vintage images to the editorial and design markets.

The library started in 1964 when Mary and Hilary Evans, enthusiastic and prolific collectors, turned their passion for images into a business. They built an incredible source of pictures, a window on the world gone by, and left a rare and valued legacy.

Initially the Trust has provided Mary Evans with 4,400 images representing the former Charrington & Co pub estate, images that were saved from a skip by one of the Trust’s Directors. Further collections of images will follow. The library can be accessed at

Pictures will still be available for purchase from the Trust Web site at
