Photographs for Sale

If you are looking for photographs of long gone streets, houses or business premises where you, your parents, family or ancestors lived, worked and played, then try our collection.  The Society has many thousands of photographs of places in and around Rotherham and prints of all of these can be purchased from the Society..

Many of our photographs were taken from the 1950’s onwards by local photographers George Bentley and Colin Leonard, however, we do have many more older images.  The Society sells prints of these on the understanding that Rotherham Family History Society hold the copyright for them and that they are for your own personal use and will not be reproduced in any way or used for your financial gain.

Prices : Photographs are available as digital or printed copies @ £2.50 each.

Please note that we no longer offer A4 sized prints due to quality issues.

Postage and packing is included in these prices for inland sales (Overseas postage will be quoted at the time of ordering and depends upon the destination and weight of the parcel).  Alternatively photographs may be ordered and then collected at the Society’s next monthly meeting at a reduction of 50p per photo.

Old Photographs Wanted

Do you have any photographs of “old” Rotherham and district, or do you know anyone who does?  If so would you/they be prepared to allow the society to take copies of them with a view to selling the copies to help raise funds for the society and further the study of local, social and family history?

If you could help us we would acknowledge your contribution in a future issue of our quarterly Members Journal, ‘A Bridge in Time’, as well as noting the same on the reverse of any print sold.

We would like to thank all those who have loaned photos to the Society.

Of particular interest would be photographs of the outlying areas of Rotherham and if you are unsure of the boundaries please refer to the RFHS AREA page of this site.

PLEASE don’t interpret the word “old” too literally, any photograph which shows a structure, landmark or scene which no longer exists will be of interest even if only a few years old.

If you think you can help please contact us at one of our monthly meetings or by email via the contacts page:
