Getty’s best Port Vale photos

Getty’s best Port Vale photos

Take a look at dozens of Port Vale photos by Getty Images stretching from this season back to the 1920s.

This week, the world’s largest photo agency, Getty Images, made millions of their images free to use. Previously, it was not possible for sites like OVF to use these images due to licensing regulations. However, the new and welcome move means that Getty Images can be embedded into blogs free of charge (more information here).

To celebrate this move, we’ll compiled some of the best Port Vale images from the Getty Images archives for you to enjoy…
