Have you seen an image on our Website that you'd like to share with family or friends? Have you found a photo or digitized document that you'd like to use in a school project or term paper? Would you like to purchase a high-resolution copy of a particular image to give as a gift, or display in your own home? All of these options are available — for every image you see, on every page within this Website!
Below is an example:
"School children at unveiling of fountain, Public Gardens, Halifax, Jubilee week, 1897"
You can share the images easily. At the top right of every web page, you'll see a row of 'Share' buttons. Use these to post the image link to your favourite social networking site — we've included Facebook, Twitter, Delicious, Digg and StumbleUpon. Have all your friends and family look at what you've just found!
Please Note: Clicking on these buttons will take you directly to those sites without the intervention of a third-party linking service.
You can email the link for any page you find on this Website to a friend or to your own email account, by using the 'Email' button at the top right of every page. Please Note: When you click this button, the email form that opens is independent from the Website — we can't access your e-mail or read its contents, and no information entered in the form is stored. Please read our Privacy Page for further details.
You can print off any page and/or image you find on this Website, for personal research or non-commercial use, by using the 'Print' button at the top right of every page. The image will print at a low-resolution — not publication quality, but satisfactory enough for your own research and use. (If you want, you can use your browser's 'Print Preview' option to take a look before you print.)
The Flash-based Zoomify© tool embedded in most of our digital images turns off automatically when you click 'Print' — in other words, you can't print the image in magnified format, or zoom-in to print a particular area of the image. If you can't get it to print (there might occasionally be browser compatibility issues) then read on....
You can save any image you find on this Website for personal research or non-commercial use, by using the 'Save Image' button at the top right of the page. Clicking on the button automatically creates a low-resolution jpeg image for you to right-click and save. There's also a print option in the right-click list, enabling you to print-off the image at low resolution.
You can purchase a high resolution (300 dpi) copy of any image you find on this Website, for personal research or non-commercial use. At present, we provide copies in digital format only, delivered to you in either of two ways — electronically (download from our download service) or on CD/DVD and sent via regular postal service.
Once you receive the file you can print it off yourself, or take it to your local photographic service for printing to special paper, custom framing, etc. Fees for digital copies are posted on the Using the Archives page. Contact Us to start the ordering process.
Every page and/or image that you share, print, save or buy from this Website is available for personal research and/or non-commercial use — with the following exceptions and clarifications:
