How do I locate an image?
Using the Collections page, searches can be performed either by a typed search or using the drop down menus.

What Types of images can I search for?
These are listed in the Category drop down list. Select from football photographs; magazine advertisements; national advertisements (football programmes); regional advertisements (football programmes) and Wee Red Book advertisements. You may then refine your search by selecting from the remaining team, decade or venue drop down lists or by typing in a relevant word or phrase.  Only select from those drop down options which would benefit your search.

How might I locate all of the regional advertisements for my area?
Regional adverts are organised by foot ball grounds and not clubs. Select Regional Advertisement (programmes) from the Category drop down list.  Additionally selecting a football ground from the Location drop down list will limit results to advertisements local to that ground. Magazine titles in the Location drop down list may also be used to limit results for magazine advertisements.

There are no results beyond 1980. Why is this?
There are no results yet. This web site serves as a resource for reminiscence, as time progresses and there is a demand for more recent images, these will be added to the existing archive.

How do I change my password?

I cannot find the image I’d hoped to. What can I do?

How do I use a light box?
Light boxes allow you to pick and store your favourite images, after clicking on an image you will have the option to create and name a light box. This option appears below the image itself. You may then add further images to this light box and access these all on your Account page by clicking the Lightboxes option.
