We have a fully searchable photo gallery kiosk which contains over 7,000 photos and some documents relating to Chatteris. These have all been donated by people associated with the town.
The kiosk is very easy to use and has an extra large screen to view the pictures which have been arranged in categories such as Agriculture, Buildings, Celebrities, Education, Industry, Military etc. You can also search by names or simple words to find what you need.
We are always pleased to receive photographs and documents to add to our current collection, if you bring your images into the Museum we can scan them which means you can keep your copy.
We are always looking for more donations to add to our collection, it is important to have a photographic record of buildings and events that happen in the town. Without a record of the past and present (which will be tomorrow’s history) we will not have a comparison of the structural changes in the town.
We can copy a photograph from our records for you, we do not charge but a donation would be appreciated.
We have many photographs of school groups, events etc., where we are looking for names to fit the faces, can you help identify some of these people?
