I search the British Newspaper Archive frequently.
I don't get Family History hits very often any more but for more general researches it's a goldmine and well worth the annual subscription.
The BNA has introduced a new search tool just for pictures.
It's limited to five periodicals for now:
Illustrated Sporting & Dramatic News
and Britannia and Eve.
You can read more about it on this BNA Blogpost.
It's free to search on this page of the BNA.
As it's a new search tool, it's still in development.
I did a search for Arthur Rubinstein, the renowned pianist, who was born on this day in 1887. There were several interesting photos of him in the BNA but I couldn't figure out how to get to the article without undertaking another ordinary search.
So, the new search tool seems to work well in finding any images which match your search term. However, it doesn't appear to connect to anything if there's an image you're interested in. I'll keep checking it and see if it improves. Or work out what I'm doing wrong!
Certainly, the bookmarking facility was very cumbersome when the BNA commenced but the revised version is very quick and user-friendly so I'm sure this picture search tool will become an asset once any teething troubles are sorted out.
Thanks for visiting my website today.
And if you've bought any of my Family History books - thanks very much. It's about a year since I did my interview for "Life and Living" magazine although the article wasn't published until the summer. It's still available on page 16 of the magazine if you missed it.
And just in case you like reading detective novels, A Single To Filey by Michael Murray is still available for 99p although the sale ends on January 31st.
