Unbelievably, January 16, 2013 marks 5 years since the launch of the Flickr Commons. The pool of images has grown to more than 250,000 from 56 different libraries, archives, and museums. To celebrate in a way that recognizes the wonderful diversity and quality of Flickr Commons photos, we asked Commons member institutions to send us links to a few of their most viewed, commented, or favorited images to create this gallery. We received so many wonderful images that they've spilled into multiple galleries. We encourage you to click on the images to view the comments on the original; we know you'll find some surprises. Enjoy! Update: More pictures to delight you are also appearing in sets and blogs noted in the Flickr Commons discussion group.
