Walgreens Boots Alliance Archive catalogue


This digital archive holds around 42,000 entries and includes photographs, letters, advertisements, building plans, and colleague magazines. It gives anyone interested in the history of the business the opportunity to discover and study resources rich in detail.


The majority of the archive holdings on this site relate to the UK’s leading pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer and, WBA business, Boots UK, and chart its development from its foundations in the mid-19th century.


The entire Walgreens Boots Alliance archive collection, in the UK, is currently being re-catalogued, thanks to funding from Wellcome, and the current digital entries account for approximately a half of the holdings at this time.
