Cheltenham Photographs from the past

Extended to October 15, 2011

Cheltenham Main Library and Local Studies Library

Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum has a vast collection of photographs from the past of many different local places in the town. Due to popular demand we are returning a small selection of these to the main library and local studies library for display until 15 October. While we have identified the places in most of the photos on show, there are people in them who wed like to identify and no doubt many stories to be revealed.

If you think you might know something about one of the photographs on show then you can complete a form at the library wed love to hear from you and find out more.

Linked to this we are running a photographic competition to create an archive for the future. If you would like to go out and take a photograph of Cheltenham with the possibility of it becoming part of the museum collection then you can enter the competition through flickr. Full details about the competition are on our website,

Exhibitions & Education Manager, Sophia Wilson says, "Wed like people to go out and take any view of Cheltenham which appeals to them then upload it on our flickr site One day in Town Flickr Group. The competition ends October 31; after this well select 100 photographs to become part of the Art Gallery & Museum archive, therefore giving us a comprehensive collection of images of Cheltenham in 2011. This will be quite unique as so often there are gaps in collections and we dont always know the full story behind the picture."
