The National Library of Scotland bring The Commons over 2,000 images, including The Last Letter of Mary Queen of Scots, photographs of tenements on the South Side of Edinburgh taken in 1929 prior to their demolition, the order for the massacre of Glencoe and World War One official photographs from the Library’s Haig Collection, making theirs one of the largest collections in The Commons.
Be it soldiers in the trenches, planes taking to the skies, nurses in the hospitals tending to the wounded or just some camp horseplay, their World War I collection is striking in its comprehension. Dig deeply into these rich archives to see images of Winston Churchill, Queen Mary, the Prince of Wales, King George V and French President Raymond Poincaré.
