Title (click to see record in context)E series (Engineering photographs); 1897-1989
DescriptionPhotographic prints, negatives and corresponding indexes to the engineering photographs (E series). Some albums of contact prints from the E series are also included.

E series photographs were commissioned by the Engineering Department and so, broadly, most are of 'engineering' subjects including buildings, equipment, tools, staff clothing, kiosks, vehicles, cable ships, construction, maintenance, research and testing. There are also photographs of wartime activities and bomb damage. Other subjects are also included, particularly in later years.

The series begins in 1897 and ends in 1989. It comprises approximately 80,000 photographs, but a proportion of these are held at the Postal Museum.
