About the Royal Photographic Society collection-

The RPS Collection which consists of over 250,000 images and artefacts from the last 150 years of photography. The Society’s Collection is one of the world’s great photography collections. It, along with its archive and library is held for the nation at the National Media Museum in Bradford, UK. It was Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert, a staunch supporter of the Society, who suggested that The Society began to collect photographs to record the rapid technical process in photography, which was supplemented as time went on by collections of books and apparatus.
