This page links to web images or, with permission, displays images of H.E. Bates. More images will be added over time. In the "popular journal" section of the bibliography page are listed many articles that have photographs of Bates, his family, and his home. Similarly, a number of articles by Bates contain similar photographs (found most easily in "expert search" by limiting to "genre:essay" and "document type:autobiographical").

Note that many of the sites at "Links" contain photographs of Bates and of book covers.
