Library of Congress and Flickr

The Library of Congress has added over 3,000 photos from two of its collections to Flickr, the photo-sharing site.  These are “images for which no copyright restrictions are known to exist” (Library of Congress Blog).  One collection is from the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information and includes color photographs from the 1930s and 1940s.  The other collection is the Bain News Service Collection and includes photographs from the 1910s.
