Historical Images from the EURO-Photo Project

European Pressphoto Agency is one of the leading European news agencies participating in the EURO-Photo project funded by the European Union's ICT Policy Support.

The EURO-Photo project aims to digitise 150.000 historical images from the archives of ten leading European news agencies during the project and to make them available to Europeana - together with a significant number of their historical pictures already digitised and captioned. Images in these archives are among the most valuable historical documents of the last century. They record the major domestic and international events (political, social, cultural, sporting), celebrities and daily life from the turn of the twentieth century to the mid 1990s.


The major part of the epa archive is available online through the epa webgate. For a complete access a personal login is necessary which is provided by epa upon request for its clients and partners.
