bringing archives to life

History

To us, the history is just as important as the objects.

Technology

We use the most advanced technology to create a robust and long-lasting resource.

Accessible

We create an accessible resource for a wider audience to enjoy.

Archive

In addition, a comprehensive catalogue is created to enhance and expand understanding.

Current and past projects

Priestley and Sons

We are currently cataloguing and digitising the archive of Priestley and Sons Photographers. The collection has approximately 350 single images along with 4 photo albums. Also included are the complete business records and the catalogue dating from 1895 until the 1930s.

Wallasey Historical Society

In November 2016 we were approached to digitise a local history society’s collection of glass plate negatives. We then undertook digital restoration of a number of the images for an exhibition.

Wallasey Borough Engineers

Over Christmas 2017 and New Year 2018 we digitised the glass plate negatives documenting the Kings Parade Development in New Brighton. Almost 1,000 plates were scanned at 1200dpi resulting in images equivalent in size to a 100 Mega Pixel photograph.

Why we do what we do

We are committed to the preservation of history. Archives hold items of significant importance. Many are extremely delicate and digitisation completely removes the need for the items to be handled reducing the risk of physical damage. Combined with proper cataloguing and storage, collections can be protected for future generations.
