The Library of Congress made a huge step yesterday in opening the door to our visual past with its new Flickr project.
More than 3,000 photos from its vast collection of millions were put up on the photo sharing site. Viewers are invited to tag photos and comment about them. I found myself losing track of time when I went through photos from the 1930s and 40s taken in this country.
It's worth a look. Thousands have looked at the picks since yesterday. Library of Congress blogger Matt Raymond also describes the project.
