We’d like to welcome the Nantucket Historical Association as the 22nd Flickr Commons partner. The Research Library and Archives preserves the history of Nantucket Island through its collection of over 50,000 photographs, a sampling of which are offered via 10 sets on Flickr.

The 209 photos feature Nantucket’s lighthouses, lightships, and lifesavers, leisure activity, beaches, brides and businesses, as well as boats, planes trains and automobiles. Some of Nantucket’s most notable residents are also shown, including Tony Sarg, an American puppeteer, illustrator, designer and painter, who is famous for creating balloons for the Macy department store parades.
