Why we do what we do
95 million images are uploaded to Instagram every day yet there are archives and libraries full of images that haven’t been seen for decades. Some haven’t been seen in over 100 years. Our aim is to change that. By working to digitise at risk collections we will be able to give these forgotten images a new life and bring them to a brand new audience.
New Permanent Exhibition
Over 40 of our images of New Brighton dating from 1890 to the mid 1940s have been restored and made into a permanent exhibition at The James Atherton Pub in New Brighton.
Greenleaf Project is working with Rockpoint Leisure to promote New Brighton’s historical side.
Priestley and Sons
Our current project is cataloguing and digitising the Priestley and Sons collection. The ultimate aim of the project will be to publish a second revised and updated edition of ‘Merseyside in Monochrome’
Wallasey Borough Engineers
During the early part of the 20th Century New Brighton, Wirral enjoyed a period of development. The Wallasey Borough Engineers photographed these works over 40 years. The 800 original glass negatives survive to this day and have been scanned for the first time producing images of unparalleled quality.
Wallasey Historical Society
In November 2016 we were approached by the Wallasey Historical Society to digitise over 600 negatives and lantern slides. Many of the images are famous in the local area however the scans from the original negatives are the best that had ever been seen.
