The Library of Congress is asking for your help.
The government archive has posted 3,000 historic images to the online photo-sharing site Flickr, and it's asking users to add tags, notes and comments to the photos. Many of the images lack basic information, such as where they were taken and who is pictured.
About 50 of the photos were taken during the early 1940s in Fort Worth, at Meacham Airport (including the one shown here) and Consolidated Aircraft Corp. facilities (see the rosy riveter below). Those photos are part of the Library of Congress' collection of color photographs taken during the 1930s and 1940s.
In all, the archive has about 14 million photos and other visual materials; many of them are also available on their Web site. But the Flickr project will allow users to add information that Library staff do not have time or resources to do.
