Alan Clarke is well known to us here on the Volunteer blog. He is a regular contributor, treating us to his observations of the fascinating detail in some of the photographs in the museum collection.

Now join him for his talk, which will be a real treat, in the Lecture Hall, on Thursday 7 June at 6.30pm. The Salisbury Museum holds an incredible archive of old images. These include the Salisbury Journal photographic negatives archive dating back to 1953, and 60,000 negatives which form The Austin Underwood collection. Photographer, museum volunteer and blogger, Alan Clarke will talk about how the image collection has been scanned, recorded and ordered, and the work that remains to be completed. In the process of putting the archive into order, some fascinating images have been unearthed and this is a unique opportunity to see these. Discover how this vast resource is being used and the search techniques available.
