A group for posting mystery vintage photographs for identification of people or location.

Please note: all images MUST be 1945 or earlier; all images MUST contain a mystery person, location or object with sufficient clues that it might be identified!

Once images are identified, please remove them from the group and consider adding them to The Astonishing Power of Flickr

Group Description

A place for old, unidentified photos, in the hope that someone will come along and spot the place, face or object.

Flickr is such a great community, with so many different people from around the world, with an equally diverse range of interests, so what better a place to get those mysterious old photos identified?

Group Rules

By adding photos to this group please be aware that the images may also be displayed on and by adding them you are consenting to such use.

But don't worry, such use is strictly in the interest of promoting the photographs and images will always be linked back to the original photo page, no copies will be stored off of Flickr (other than temporary ones to improve site performance - 'caching'), and if you remove your images from this group then they will be removed from the site.

Additional Info

  • This group will count toward the photo's limit (60 for Pro members, 30 for free members)
  • Accepted content types: Photos, Videos, Images, Art, Screenshots
  • Accepted safety levels: Safe
