These books were produced to a standard formula, the Archive series typically being 128 pages long with a short introduction (2 pages) and one or two old photographic images per page. Each picture will have 2-6 lines of captioning. The pictures are arranged into topic chapters - and there will be no index. At some stage the series was transferred from Chalford to Tempus, and where one author was responsible for two Archive volumes, these have been republished together as a single volume by Tempus.
