Antique photos released online for first time (30 Pics)

From Tower Bridge under construction to Queen Victoria celebrating her Diamond Jubilee, a huge collection of never-seen-before historic images have been made public for the first time.

Taken from the Francis Frith Collection, the album includes as many as 250,000 antique photographs on everything from the royal family to villages and towns across the UK from the 19th and 20th centuries.

The images, taken from 1857 to 2005, have been uploaded to family history website Ancestry, and are searchable by location, year and subject enabling millions of people to see how their local area has changed over the years.
