This looks to be a fascinating and useful resource, should anybody want to research the history Utrecht, The Netherlands. The archives are extensive, but, of course, not a lot of it is in English. Then again, if one has a Internet translator and a passing grasp of Dutch grammar and syntax, figuring out the garbled, mangled Google Translate results shouldn’t be too hard. Of the services offered, there is a search-able photo archive, much like one Buckinghamshire County has made available. The archive has several different specialized databases, like this one from the 1970’s till present. There’s also a more generalized historical search with a pull-down menu.  Here, I found plenty of interior pictures of the Hoog Catharijne, one the largest shopping malls in Europe (at least, when I lived there).
