Empty streets, home-made haircuts and a giant NHS thank you cut into a field.
These are among the 200 images that best reflect the nation's lockdown, according to Historic England.
More than 3,000 pictures were submitted by the public during a week-long appeal, with the final selection being added to the Historic England archive .
Ten contemporary artists have also entered pictures into the archive as well as choosing favourites from the public submissions.
Historic England said the call-out was the first time the public had been asked to capture photographs for the archive since World War Two.
"The fascinating response to our Picturing Lockdown call-out sheds light on our collective and individual experiences of lockdown and provide a snapshot into this unusual time that will be accessible for future generations to see and learn from," Claudia Kenyatta, director of regions, said.
