History Is Colorful

Historical pictures tell a story. Like us, people in the past have responded to events with inventiveness, courage, devotion, prejudice, violence, and the whole range of action and emotion we see in our own lives and times.

North Wind Picture Archives brings history to life with stock images and hand-colored illustrations - families facing the isolation of a new land, angry colonists in desperate rebellion, the determination of escaping slaves. Our stock photography brings you to historical places. Animation and stock video footage bring you these experiences in motion.

Our website is designed to help picture researchers find historical images to license for publication, broadcast, or other presentations. We also offer historical prints for your wall or as unique gifts.

Above all, we present the dignity of all humans, no matter what their social position or geographical location. Welcome to the past. We think you'll feel at home.
