The image archive is a service for anyone interested in historic photographs of North Lincolnshire. It is available at North Lincolnshire Museum, Normanby Hall, and North Lincolnshire Central Library in Scunthorpe.

Between them, the council’s museums service and the library service have over 25,000 photographs. Of these, more than 8,000 have already been entered into the computerised image archive, with new photographs being added continually.

Material ranges from views of the largest towns to the smallest villages, as well as covering a variety of themes such as agriculture, industry, leisure, religion and sport. Sporting themes include archive images of The Old Show Ground, Scunthorpe (now demolished), the Leisure Centre in Carlton Street (opened by Kevin Keegan in 1984), and cricket at Alkborough.
