Stewart Bale collection online exhibition

This is part of a series of online exhibitions dedicated to the Stewart Bale photographic collection to highlight the breadth of its subject matter.

The Stewart Bale collection is a rich resource of architectural images, which can be found throughout its entire date span from around 1924 to the early 1980s.

Architecture can feature as a record of a building’s completion or construction, as with the two cathedrals, or to cover damage, restoration and building alterations. There is also incidental inclusion in street scenes, shop frontages and window displays plus Stewart Bale’s own photographic interest via his non-commissioned 1613 series, such as Martins Bank.

The collection has a particular bias towards Liverpool and has left a unique record of its architectural heritage, a small selection of which is shown here.
