Helping make a historical documentary, I'm looking for photo archives of various scenes in England in the 20th century.

The story line follows a working class woman from school (1910s-1920s) through working as a clerk in a shoe shop (1930s) and marriage and homemaking mid 1930s through the 1950s.
She lived in the Midlands mostly, not in London.
We need images of interiors of classrooms, shops and houses, and related objects, that we can use freely. 1930s shoe advertising would be good too.
We're not actually in England, so we need online archives because we can't just pop around to addresses in the UK.
