The Cambridgeshire Collection, founded in 1855, is the county's principal Local Studies Library and continues to collect, organise and make available to the public a wide range of material relating to the past, present and future of Cambridgeshire. This material includes books, journals, newspapers, maps, ephemera and over four and a half million images and negatives of places and people. The paintings form a very small part of that collection.
