The BMH Photo (BMH P) series
This series consists of some 400 photographs submitted to the Bureau, many of which are instantly recognisable as iconic images of the period. Certain photographs in the BMH, such as the aerial shots of 1916 Rising action sites, are not contemporary and were taken much later by the Air Corps. The original BMH index for the photographs included basic descriptions of 'groups' of photographs from certain contributors. You can search the BMH photograph series by clicking the search icon below. The images were also digisited including the rear of the photos with relevant captions provided. For basic guidance on how to search effectively, please see some tips for effective searching.
