In our albums you will find pictures from our collections and from events we have held in our libraries. Pictures from our collections include over 6500 historical images of Newcastle upon Tyne and surrounding areas.

The latter images are, to the best of our knowledge, in the public domain. You are welcome to use them in any way you like – we would love it if you could say you got them from the Newcastle City Library Photographic Collection, though you are not required to. If you want to use the images for commercial purposes we can provide you with a high quality digital image for a fee – just contact us by emailing


On our website we also have information on ordering a hard copy of any of our images.
