12 Best Collections of Historical Images on Flickr via Ebook Friendly

Flickr The Commons

  • If you are looking for historical images, the ones from old books, or museum archives, you’ll be surprised to find lots of them on Flickr, one of the most popular image sharing sites. Flickr has more than 90 million registered members worldwide. Between 3 and 4 million new images are uploaded daily. The site, however, doesn’t only host images taken nowadays. The project’s first partner was The Library of Congress. On a list of participating institutions there are also The British Library and The Internet Archive, biggest contributors to the project, so far. Each one offers more than 1 million photos, and counting.
