Ordering From Us
All footage in The Travel Film Archive is represented for licensing either by Getty Images or the TFA Network of agents. The "Library" field for each clip indicates which library holds that clip.

If you currently deal with either of these libraries you may also contact them directly and refer to the relevant Travel Film Archive clip number.
