Interesting use of tax dollars

September 21, 2009

Flickr is a hodge podge of photographic presentation. There are some good photos, some mind-blowingly amazing photos, many truly bad photos and more than a few profane photos. One really interesting and terrific use of our tax dollars is that the Library of Congress has begun taking photos from its archives, digitizing them and posting them online. They may be available in places other than Flickr but that’s where I usually look at what they post.

Many of the photos they post are obscure but they provide a wonderful window into what American life was like in past eras. To check out the Library of Congress‘ Flickr stream, click here.
