North Wind Picture Archives' website has closed after 35 years doing business as a premier historical image agency.

Many of our images are available on Bridgeman Images here or on Alamy here.

If you need to re-license or extend rights for an image you have already acquired, please email us and we'll email you the invoice.

Thank you for your appreciation of North Wind's images and for sharing many of your ideas and experiences. Our clients have been talented, brainy, dedicated, and-most of all-have passed along to us a sense of humor. Stay safe, and keep in touch!
