Tom Gillmor – Mary Evans Picture Library

To be notified as new recordings are released, please subscribe using the button below.

Founded in 1964 by husband and wife team Hillary and Mary Evans and now comprising approximately 2.5 million unique and eclectic images (and still growing), The Mary Evans Picture Library is a fascinating example of a collection which started as a personal hobby but which has grown into a major international business.

Tom Gillmor, Head of Content, speaks to us today about managing a growing collection and how to continue to expand whilst still maintaining the personal ethos which helped make the collection so unique in the first place.

He tells us about the collection's international reach, how they have embraced the digital age, and the importance of strong metadata. He also shares some of his personal favorites from the collection, including an (almost) accurate view of life 'In the year 2000' as imagined by French artist Jean-Marc Cote in 1896.
