Small Lives

The 50 photographs in this exhibition were drawn from across NLI’s collections, and ranged from formal studio portraits featuring children of the landed classes taken in the 1880s to more candid shots of city kids taken in the 1960s.

The exhibition has ended but you can view the photographs that featured  in the exhibition on our flickr site.

Primary school worksheets are also available to download.
