Library of Congress on Flickr

I was doing some casual Sunday cruising of Flickr and discovered the Library of Congress photostream on Flickr! They have shots from the early 1900’s through the 40’s. All the ones I saw had no copyright restrictions on them…

Its interesting to page through and see some of the comments left by people on these photos. There are the usual flip comments, but in some cases people discuss a memory that that photo brings back or provide links to more resources about the content of the photo. For example, see the comments on”

Suffragettes posting bills (LOC)

Starts me thinking about possibilities for teaching and learning uses for various types of photos on Flickr – “honouring history” mashups….

Cool resource!
