Welcome to Picture Stockton.

The Picture Stockton website is administered by the Stockton Library Service and was officially launched in June 2004. Originally intended to make the images held by both the Stockton Library Service and Museum Service more accessible to the general public, the site has developed into a comprehensive pictorial record of the social history of our area.  Thanks mainly to the generous donations of photographs from those who visit the site – for which we are very grateful…

We encourage visitors to add their comments, memories and stories to the images on the site – and we welcome contributions of suitable images and photographs.  See Comments and Contributions for details…

Homepage – The homepage displays the sixteen latest additions, with the latest at the top.  If you scroll down to the last of these you will see an interactive bit of text that reads Load older posts – clicking on this will return the next sixteen most recent images.  It continues to display all images back to the most recent if you wish to scroll among them.

Comments – The latest fifteen comments are displayed prominently on the right hand side of the screen.  You can add comments or reply to a previous comment and now be alerted via email if someone responds to your comment.
