The Library of Congress is posting some of its 3,000,000+ photos on Flickr and inviting the public to tag them. So far, it includes about 1500 b&w photos from the 1910’s and another 1500 color photos from 1930-40s. It is part of a larger collection of public domain photos hosted by Flickr called the Commons. Among other things, The LOC Collection contains some photographs of Coney Island taken back in the teens.
