I've had a quick look and there's some great stuff there, but I can't see that the images are dated - well not the ones I've seen, anyway - which seems a shame.  Or am I missing something?

Um I think mine had dates on the index - I typed in Swindon Wilts and an index list came up of locations with dates alongside.

Will have another look....yes a little picture comes up with the location next to it and the date alongside.
