Yes, you read that headline right… THE Library of Congress (with a little help from Flickr that is). The partnership, called The Commons, began in June 2007 according to the project page, providing an opportunity for us, the public, to join in on the continuing conversation of history. It is a pilot program, one that will hopefully encourage other cultural institutions to share some of their archives with the world of web users.

Whether it’s a photograph from Birmingham, AL or Birmingham, MI, our help on this project is unmeasurable, so take a moment and browse through a few of these glimpses into our country’s past. It will do a great deal to help its future.
