Mass Observation Online

The Mass Observation Online archive specialises in material about everyday life in Britain. It contains papers generated by the original Mass Observation social research organisation (1937 to early 1950s) which involved the scientific observation of public attitudes and opinions.

This online resource contains primary material in the form of file reports and topic collections as well as photographs and interactive maps.
