In Praise of The British Library’s Public Domain Photo Collection!


Professional Moron

The Skipper of the Seagull One of our favourite images for quite some time!

Last month (we think it was last month) the British Library released 1 million scanned images into the public domain. You can access them from the British Library Flickr account and have a good old trip down memory lane. Some of the images are positively mental and from a bygone era, but if you remember what a shilling is then these may prove of some nostalgic purpose.

Naturally the image above, of The Skipper of The Seagull was our outright favourite. It’s so impossibly absurd we couldn’t help but particularly love it. Sadly we can’t figure out which year it’s from, so we’re going to presume it was released circa 1066. For obvious reasons.
