National Library of Scotland: 100 years of Scottish photography secured for the nation. “an exceptional collection of historic photographs that captures a century of life in Scotland is to be shared with the public following a special collaboration between the National Library of Scotland and the National Galleries of Scotland. More than 14,000 images — dating from the earliest days of photography (1840s) through to the 1940s — have been jointly acquired with support from the Scottish Government, the National Lottery and the Art Fund.” There are plans to digitize and put the collection online over the next three years.
