Independent Newspapers Archive

Primary tabs

This significant, under threat and extensive archive of about 850 000 images, now housed at UCT, spans a period from about the 1900’s – 2000. The archive has been identified as having highly significant social history and heritage value with a particular connection to Cape Town, Western Cape and UCT. Topics range from social conditions in and around Cape Town, key protests in pre- and post apartheid periods as well as a broad spectrum of political activity, sport and very large collection of images on prominent figures (sport, social, political). UCT Libraries has selected and scanned nearly 6 000 images with appropriate metadata. It will complement other collections on the history of Cape Town and the province in Special Collections. The archive intersects with History, Film and Media Studies, Sociology, and African Studies and is a valuable portal of our regional social history.
