Science & Society Picture Library (SSPL) is the centralised image repository of the National Museum of Science & Industry, which comprises the National Railway Museum, the National Media Museum and the Science Museum. SSPL also represents a number of other related image collections from outside of the museums, many of which are available for purchase as prints online.
National Media Museum
The National Media Museum looks after the world's most significant collections of historical photographs, which in 2003 was further enhanced by the acquisition of the Royal Photographic Society Collection. The museum's collections contain works by many of the most celebrated names in photographic history, including Julia Margaret Cameron, Roger Fenton, William Henry Fox Talbot, Lewis Carroll, Tony Ray-Jones and many more.
National Railway Museum
The National Railway Museum is the largest railway museum in the world. The museum's extensive archive of railway images comprises 1.4 million photographs, posters, paintings and prints dating from the earliest days of rail travel to the present day. The Vintage Railway Posters are particularly popular, and due to the IPR resting with the museum, are not available to purchase through any other websites.
Royal Photographic Society Collection
Founded in 1853, the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) was set up for the promotion of the Art and Science of Photography, by the interchange of thought and experience amongst photographers. This world famous collection covers the evolution of photography and the variety of photographic processes, its strengths being nineteenth and early twentieth century British pictorial work.
The Science Museum houses the world's largest scientific collection, and contains some of the most significant objects in the history of science, industry, technology and transport".
