Generals Bramwell and Evangeline Booth

Today I looked at Flickr and found dozens of historical photos of The Salvation Army — including shots of General William Booth’s funeral cortege and his family, parades, bell ringers, and Army officers from around the world — in The Commonssection.

According to Flickr, the key goals of The Commons are, 1) to show us “hidden treasures in the world’s public photography archives,” and, 2) to get Flickr users to contribute input and knowledge about the photos.

You are hereby invited to enrich other Flickr uses’ experience by by adding tags or leaving comments on the archival photos you find in The Commons section.

Many of the photos date back to the early part of the 20th Century and were posted by the Bain News Service.

If you see photos in the slideshow below that you want add comments to or tag with important keywords, just click on the slideshow title to be connected to the Flickr page where the images are hosted.

Now, go and start commenting and tagging! Let’s share more of our story with the world.
