History of Dorset in pictures

Air raid posters, postcards, adverts, engravings and photographs are among hundreds of historic Dorset images now available to buy for the first time.

The Dorset History Centre, which was threatened amid cost-cutting last year, has opened up its archive and put copies of more than 300 unusual, attractive and striking documents for sale online.
