The Hagblom-Foto collection

The University Library runs a project preserving the collection of the photography firm Hagblom-Foto, making the photographs in the collection available online.

The Hagblom-Foto collection is a negative collection containing about 1,200,000 press photos. The photos were taken in Lund and its surroundings between the years 1927 and 2003. The Thora Ohlsson Foundation donated the photographic collection to the University Library in the spring of 2012. We are currently running a project to preserve and make the pictures available. All negatives will receive new and better storage and a selection of them will be digitized. The Thora Ohlsson Foundation, the Gyllenstiernska Krapperup Foundation and Monica Mårtensson have financed the project.

We are publishing the digitized images in our image collection database, where you can comment and help us to identify people or places. We are grateful for any help!
