The Album: photos of Brookes and before

This is a collection of more than 400 photographs taken by the Media Workshop and Educational Media Unit photographers. These teams no longer exist, though please contact Bob Pomfret at bpomfret@brookes.ac.uk for more details.

The photos were taken during the period of transition from Oxford Polytechnic to Brookes University. They range from photos of everyday life to quirky events and prestigious visitors.

The collection is a digital-only component of the Oxford Brookes University Collection of Special Collections and Archives.
