Local Black Country photographs, views & nostalgic images from around the country. View our ever growing collection of images which date from the 1950’s to the present day.
The Archive is a web site devoted to local view photographs and other nostalgic images from our archive. Most view photographs are of Lye, a district of Stourbridge in the West Midlands (formally in the county of Worcestershire). However, as we uncover more images the areas will expand into neighbouring districts & other parts of the country. The images include: street views, aerial photographs, industrial images, car & lorry photographs, celebrities and much more. Most of the pictures were created between the 1950’s and up to the early 1990’s by multi award winning photographer the late Mr William R. Hart ABIPP. AMPA. ARPS.

The pictures & photographs on this site are available to purchase as either Fine Art Giclee Prints or as Canvas Wraps.
The Giclee Prints are available in a range of sizes & every image is printed with details of where & when the original photograph was taken. Each picture is printed on Fuji Pearl heavyweight paper using genuine Epson K3 pigment inks to create vibrant detailed prints that will last a lifetime. In fact the materials we use are guaranteed to stay colour fast for 75 years under normal lighting conditions.
Canvas Wraps are a great way to display our photographs, digital art & local views. They create a very modern and contemporary feel. Your art stands proud of the wall and your eyes are drawn directly to it without compromise. As with the Giclee Prints the Canvases we produce are also created using the best materials from Fuji. We use Fuji 100% cotton canvas & Epson K3 pigment inks & each canvas is laminated in a vacuum press. The laminate protects your canvas from the elements and enables it to be wiped clean with a damp cloth. Finally the canvas is stretched over a high quality wooden stretcher frame ready for hanging on the wall.
