Photo Detectives

The Scottish Fisheries Museum holds around 14,000 negative in its collection. Many of these have remained unseen for a long time. Our ongoing digitisation project seeks to make this incredible collection much more accessible to the wider public, including school groups.

This resource aims to encourage young people to develop the analytical skills needed to investigate photographs as historical sources. It is suitable for Third Level students and is packed with ideas and activities with strong Curriculum for Excellence links.
