50 new images on the Commons on Flickr

April 16th, 2008 by Seb Chan

As promised we’ve just added another 50 historical images from our Tyrrell Collection to the Commons on Flickr. In the first week we had nearly 20,000 views and an enormous amount of tagging and ‘favouriting’ activity combined with many congratulatory messages and support for the Museum’s release of these images into the Commons.

The new additions include historical shots of the Art Gallery, areas around Bulli, and this great photograph of the Great Hall at Sydney University.

  • Finally got the chance to sit down and have a look through the Phm collection so far on Flickr Commons and am now thoroughly homesick! So great to see this content in a context where many more people will have the chance to find it and engage with it on their own terms. Congratulations.

  • Seb, is there a reason only the first three lines of all comments display? (here on f+n)
