Blackford Historical Society maintains an extensive archive of historical photographs relating to the village, its people and the surrounding area.

The gallery below shows a thumbnail copy of the photograph (click on the thumbnail to open a larger image) and a textual description with any information we know about the subjects. We would welcome any comments or additional information relating to each photograph to help us complete our records.

The photographs on this page come from an album donated by descendants of the Sharp family.  The photos in the album which are dated are between 1884 and 1886 and we suspect the rest are a similar age.  The Sharp family are R&D Sharp Limited who owned the brewery on Stirling Street.  A number of the photographs were taken in the grounds of Viewfield House.

Please contact the Society Secretary here with any information or if you would like to enquire about the cost for high resolution copies of some of the photographs. Please quote both the number and the title so we know which photo you are referring to.
