Photographic archivesPlease note that due to staff shortages, we are unable to offer an archive or library enquiry service at present.
The Photographic Archive contains approximately 150,000 negatives and prints, and approximately 15,000 slides. Ever since St Fagans opened in 1948 the staff have been taking photographs of Welsh folk life. The Archive holds, besides these, a wealth of much older photographs which are either originals acquired as donations, or copies made from originals loaned to the Museum for this purpose.
The Photographic Archive is used extensively by researchers, and especially by publishers and the media.
