Smithsonian Photos online

Portrait of Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922), Engineerboingboing is pointing out that the Smithsonian has posted a collection of photos from its archives to Flickr.

It looks like all of the photos are copyright free, so this is a wealth of riches for bloggers and others who might need a great illustration of say Alexander Graham Bell.

Feel free to make the Smithsonian your Flickr friend, because this is a great idea from a very old institution to get its knowledge more available in the web age.
