About Us

The James Bentley Archive is a private collection of nearly half a million black & white images of UK towns & villages. Many of the images in the collection are very rare, most of them unique. In 2017 it was decided to digitise the collection and sell copies online, raising funds to help preserve the collection for future generations. We also sell Transportation, Military & some topographical images from further afield. We add new images to the collection on a daily basis, so please check back regularly.
