Searching the Collection: 

The Illustrations Index is available to browse in the search room via a card index, and is searchable by subject. Each subject has a class number and each card within that particular class number has a brief description of the illustration and where known, the date of the illustration. At present the illustrations can’t be searched using our online catalogue. However we are currently undertaking an on-going project to make this possible.

How the collection can help your research:
You can use the illustrations index to undertake research into building design, specific building features, street appearance and area development over time.
