The Library of Congress is uploading magnificent photochromes of Italy from the late 1800s and early 1900s to The Commons. Please take a trip through time with these ink-based photolithographs; we’d love to see your stories about them in the photos’ comments.

A fun thing to do with these historic photochroms is to find “now” photos that match up the “then photos. If you find good pairs, please be sure to let us know in the Flickr Commons group.
