This week has been kind of crazy. At the Library of Congress, we made 3000+ photos available on Flickr and the level of positive and warm responses has exceeded all of our wildest expectations.
It’s been thrilling to watch as people from around the world have gone back in time to the early and mid 1900s and gotten to know eras of decades ago.
Also… it’s been rewarding to see in some instances these photos are starting to spark creativity and discussion in the folks that have enjoyed them.
Well, I look forward to seeing what the future of this project will hold.
Here is a sample of some of my favorite photos from the Library of Congress sets that were made available on Flickr:
