LC Pilot Project with Flickr

In January, the Library of Congress uploaded 3,000 photos to the photo-sharing service Flickr.  Ultimately, they would like to provide access to their 14,000,000 photographs.  This pilot project starts with photos from 2 collections:  the George Grantham Bain Collection and the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information photos.  They have been posted in an area called The Commons and no copyright restrictions are known for these images.
