Braintree Museum possesses a large collection of photographs documenting the District’s people and places from the 1880s to the present day.

Photographic evidence is an excellent resource for bringing local history to life. The Museum’s collection illustrates local industry, street views, schools and public life. Highlights include an important series of wartime images and a fascinating range of aerial views of Braintree.

Our collection can be browsed on a touchscreen system in the Museum Shop, where quality re-prints can be ordered.
