     As early as 1836 and for more than 50 years, Oswald Macqueron (1821-1899) traveled the department of the Somme and represented, in pencil or watercolor, churches, old houses, carved stones, famous trees but also Contemporary buildings (stations, railway bridges, factories, etc.). He also copies drawings from the Delignières de Saint-Amand collection or the Siffait manuscripts, etc. Erudit, it adds annotations and references when it considers useful. Very quickly, helped by his son Henri Macqueron, he inserts among his personal works prints, photographs, various reproductions cut from books or periodicals. He also included drawings and watercolors by local artists, including the following crayons - executed after 1865 - from the abbevillo lithograph Léon Gillard (1827-1889), drawings acquired in 1889.

    This collection is given to the municipal library of Abbeville in 1937 by the daughters of Henri Macqueron who had been curator of the library from 1920 to 1935. Since then, iconographic documents have been added to this collection which has more than 15,000 documents .
