Every week Jerripedia editors select a single photograph (or sometimes a set of two or three) which present a particularly important view of Jersey in days gone by. It might be a striking old image of a part of the island which has changed little over the years, but it is more likely to recapture a view from the past which has long disappeared. It may be a photograph (or a painting or drawing) selected from one of our existing galleries, but more often than not it will be a picture which has not previously appeared on the site.
All the pictures of the week which have appeared since this feature was introduced in June 2011 have been transferred to an archive page, where they are retained as a diverse and fascinating pictorial record of Jersey, its people and places of historical interest.
Jerripedia features the work of hundreds of photographers, many of them anonymous, many others well known. Some were active in the island at the very dawn of photography in the 1840s, and the history of photography in Jersey is in many ways a history of photography itself.
Our main photography page provides information about many of the most important of the pioneer photographers and examples of their work, as well as links to articles about the history of their art in the island.
