As the East Coast continues to crawl out from under this December’s record snowfall, the Postal Museum added some wintery images to its Flickr Commons site. If you haven’t had a chance to look through the Commons site yet, now’s the time. Or, you could sit through Uncle Bob’s tales of the years he walked 10 miles in the snow to school and back (uphill both ways) one more time.
The Commons project includes over 25 museums, libraries, archives, and institutions on Flickr, sharing their photographic treasures with the public. The Smithsonian Institution and the National Postal Museum were among the first participants in this project. To date the museum has 194 photographs in the Commons.
We recently added three new photographs with winter or holiday themes, including the photograph above of an Ohio Rural Free Delivery letter carrier. Enjoy these new photographs and the Flickr Commons site, and most of all, keep warm!
