Picture Perfect
Yesteryear in local towns and villages.

March 2015 - October 2015
This special photographic exhibition, commissioned by the Devon Rural Archive, showcases the buildings and landscapes of local towns and villages. The images have been chosen from the tens of thousands of pictures, from all over Devon, that are stored in our Image Bank.

The DRA volunteers have recently embarked on a project to digitise all the images, historic and modern, so they may be preserved whilst being more accessible to our visitors. Not all the pictures in the collection have been identified and  so we invite you to help us fill in the  missing details.

If you have any images of Devon buildings or landscapes that you would like to add to our collection then  please bring them in so we may scan them and return the original to you.  We hope you enjoy this display.

Our grateful thanks to all those who have contributed photographs and postcards to the DRA Image Bank since its inception; our volunteers who are cataloguing and digitising the vast collection and of course our visitors.

Available to view every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 11am - 3pm

On Tuesday 23rd June 2015 between 11am and 3pm we will be holding our 6th annual Picture Day - bring in your pictures of Devon's buildings and landscape to be scanned and added to our Image Bank. Help preserve the county's history for future generations.
