These archives have been built up since the founding of the ANP in 1934. The Historical Archives cover all the analog material of the ANP. They include, among other items, the business archives, written radio bulletins, audio messages, text coverage and photographs.
Since 1946, the ANP has been making its own news photo productions. The photo archives give an overview of more than half a century of national and international news in the categories of politics, royals, sports, the economy, disasters, everyday life and entertainment. Also included in the archives are materials from Polygoon, Kippa and the royal archives of Benelux Press and Capital Photos. The entire analog photo archives of the 20th century consist of more than 2 million images, in addition to more than 890 scrapbooks.
