Flickr and Library of Congress join forces to create an amazing repository of images

Generator hall of the powerhouse, Chickamauga Dam, Tenn. The dam, located near Chattanooga, 471 miles above the mouth of the Tennessee River, has an authorized power installation of 81,000 kw., which can be increased to a possible ultimate of 108,000 kw.

Flickr is working with the Library of Congress to integrate historic photos into Flickr Commons. This is a great way to add folksonomy, i.e. tagging, to a library of images. Flickr users are able to add new tags to the images.

Not only that, the images are amazing! I love this shot of generators in a Tennessee powerhouse
