Group Description

A single group for all geotagged vintage images - creating a historic photographic map of the world.

Why the group?

Seeing maps from individual collections from Flickr Commons, such as the map of Powerhouse Museum photos makes for fascinating viewing. But then see what great things can be done with such collections: for example the Google Streetview 'Then & Now' mashup from Paul Hagon; or the ability to walk around Sydney finding vintage images with your mobile phone and revisit specific locations.

All this makes me realise what huge potential there is - just think about things like that available on a global scale?

It's all possible, if only there was a single place to find all such images.

What images to add

Please feel free to upload as many images as you like, with just two rules:

- images must have been taken c 1945 or earlier
- images must be geotagged

How to add images

I find the easiest way to add images is to go to Organize and choose the Groups tab. Then from teh drop-down list above the thumbnails of your photos select Your geotagged content. Choose the vintage images you want to upload (shift-click for a single block of multiple images, control-click for individual selections) and drag them to the group.
