Quick Irene!

Get the Flickr



Here's a link to beginner's quide to Flickr.com

Flickr's not hard to use, but it's nice to have someone walk through the steps.


"Flickr is a popular photo sharing and hosting service with advanced and powerful features. It supports an active and engaged community where people share and explore each other's photos.

You can share and host hundreds of your own pictures on Flickr without paying a dime. There's also a pro service that gets you unlimited storage and sharing for about two bucks a month, making it one of the cheapest hosting sites around."

Old Photographs

Collections



I found another source of great old pictures.

Conveniently named:


Old-Picture.com


"It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Even with a thousand words, how do you describe the look in a Mother's eye who does not know how she will feed her children, or the look on the face of a paratrooper minutes before the D-day invasion. The simple answer is that there are some stories that can only be told with pictures. This site is dedicated to those stories, and those pictures."
