A note on the back of this photo reads: "Party given by gentlemen to children."
Uploaded this one in June 2011, but I'm recycling it now because I have a very special request!
Next Wednesday 16th marks the 5th anniversary of the launch of Flickr Commons, when the Library of Congress unleashed their photographic collections on an unsuspecting world. I got a lovely email from Helena Zinkham, who's the chief of the LOC's photo division. She wants a celebration, and I think she's right.
I'm wondering if some of you would like to pick a favourite photo of yours (for whatever reason!) from our NLI photostream, write a paragraph about it, and send it to me with a link to the photo for posting to our NLI Blog. We can then have a celebratory blog post, with the photos in question on display too.
I'd been thinking about doing this for a while, but Helena's email just gave me the kick I needed. So, who's in?!
