Snow scenes in photo collection

  • 27th December 2021

These wonderful photos of snowy Worcester are within a collection deposited by a local photographer. Philip Ruler passed on several volumes of photographs, mostly from the 1990s, to add to the Archives. These have recently been catalogued by Tom, our Trainee Archivist. With his role we are giving him a range of work to provide with experience before training as an Archivist. This includes cataloguing a number of deposits which have come in.

Tom noted these great snowy photos and suggested bringing them to wider attention over Christmas, and we thought this was a great ideas as these are lovely photos. Many of the photographs passed to us over the years go into the Worcestershire Photographic Survey, which contains 80,000 images. However when a specific collection by a photographer comes to us we usually keep it together as a specific deposit.
