Images and Moving Footage

The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Archive contains over 100,000 items of unique images (prints, original negatives and transparencies) and moving footage (films, VHS, betacam) representing the fascinating history of the Lanchester, SS, Daimler and Jaguar marques as well as the wider twentieth century motor industry and society.

Many of our images and moving footage have never been seen before.  Our collections include press and promotional shots, product ranges, motor shows, vehicle testing, company documentaries, racing and an insight into working life in the factories.  We are still cataloguing many of our collections to archive standards, please contact us for details of what we hold.


Visit our online shop for a large selection of ready to order high-quality prints, which make lovely gifts.  Our prints are available in a variety of sizes with/without mounts for a professional finish.  All prints purchased are for personal use only with no reproduction rights granted.
