Can you identify the photo at right? It was taken at the National Democratic Convention sometime between 1910 and 1915. Thanks to the Library of Congress, such photos are now available on Yahoo's flickr online photo database.
The LOC announced earlier this year that it would add two of its historical photo collections to flickr:
These collections were chosen based on their popularity with visitors to the Library of Congress web site. The photos are high-resolution and have no restrictions on publication or distribution.
To view the LOC photos, go to http://www.flickr.com/photos/Library_of_Congress. You don't need to have a flickr account to view the images, but you do need to sign up for a free account if you want to add comments or keyword tags to any of the photos.
Whether you're a current student, or simply a lifetime learner like me, you'll find these photos fascinating and a rich source of history.

The Darien Community Information Network will benefit from the Library's website redesign. As organizations move their sites to the platform used by the Darien Library, members of those organizations will be able to use their library user ID to sign into their club's or organization's website as well.
The Library's Epson Stylus Photo 960 printer prints out high-quality pictures in the following sizes: 2 x 2, 3 x 5, 4 x 6, 5 x 7, and 8 x 10. Picture packages, which include images in various size combinations, are also possible. Library technology staffers are available to print out your pictures. The per page charge of $1.00 covers the cost of the special photo paper and toner. A minimum of 24 hours' notice is required for all photo printing.
For more information on the photo printer or any other Library technology, please call the Help Desk at 203-669-5238.
These organizations all use Darien Library's web site hosting:
