Flickr’s The Commons project seeks to showcase publicly held photography collections from around the globe, and they’ve just launched a pilot program with the Library of Congress. Currently there’s some 3,500 photos available (a mere drop in the bucket considering the LoC’s massive archive, but a good start) across two sets: News in the 1910s and 1930s – 1940s in Color.
These are the kinds of projects I like to see. Neat stuff, and I can’t wait for more to be made available.
Do your part by helping add tags to the existing photos!
