DescriptionPhotographs deposited by UK Youth including photograph albums and slides.

The photographs include photographs of youth work activities and competitions, fundraising activities and of people connected with UK Youth. Many of the photographs are not labelled with a date and description.

Most photographs from the 1950s to 1970s (and some earlier photographs) have a number stamped on the back. This appears to have been a numbering system used for organizing photographs which appears to have been abandoned in the late 1970s.
ArrangementThe majority of photographs at the time of deposit were arranged in thirteen folders: Activities, AGMs, The Arts, Fundraising activities, Past officers of the Association, PHAB, NAYC Premises, Royals, Sports and Competitions (three folders), Staff, and Supporters and celebrities. These folders have been catalogued as sub-series. Each folder contained various envelopes and other packets of photographs, some of which were labelled and some of which were not. Each of these envelopes has been catalogued as a file. Most folders also contained some photographs which were loose in the folder. These are catalogued as "Other photographs" within each sub-series.

A miscellaneous sub-series has been created to contain photographs which were originally in envelopes or other packets that were not in any of the 13 main folders and a photograph albums sub-series has been created to contain albums (these were not in any of the original 13 folders).

The "General UK Youth work" sub-series was formed from a separate set of photographs which appear to be taken by or given to Carola Adams, a UK Youth employee.
