We hold an extensive collection of photographs and postcards relating to the local area, from the 1840s to the present day. Digital copies of about 5000 photographs can be seen in our Collections Browser.

We have a huge range of photographs giving a real flavour of life in Falkirk including places of work, streets, houses, people enjoying sports and leisure activities, children playing and at school and much more - really most aspects of life. 

The photographs were taken across the Falkirk area and further afield across Scotland including Linlithgow, Broxburn, Alloa, Dollar, Stirling, Fife and Perth to name but a few. You can see the original photographs in the collection, free of charge, by visiting the Archives. 

Digital copies of about 5000 photographs can be seen in our Collections Browser. Have a look at the highlights section to see small collections of the digitised images or use the search tools to find out what other photographs we hold. For copyright and resource reasons we cannot digitise all the photographs in the collections.

You can purchase copies of most of the photographs (subject to copyright restrictions). If you are publishing a book or making a film or video or television broadcast or using photographs in a talk, we may have the photographs you need - please get in touch to find out more!
