General view of one of the classification yards of the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad, Chicago, Ill. (LOC)1 It seems that the Library of Congress is uploading photos to flickr. These are photos from the LOC Prints & Photographs Division. The photos have no known copyright and are downloadable at decent sizes (1024 x 768). There is some great stuff here for historical projects. So far they have about 3000 photos up (out of 14 million, that’s about 2%) and are supposed to be adding more. You can add descriptions, tags and notes to the pictures. The loc is crowdsourcing the photos to ease documentation. It’s a grand experiment.
