Please join us in welcoming The Royal Library, Denmark to The Commons!

They share two fantastic sets with us – Sven Türck, a Danish photographer who took many photos of daily life in Denmark…

The key goals of The Commons on Flickr are to firstly show you hidden treasures in the world’s public photography archives and secondly to show how your input and knowledge can help make these collections even richer. You’re invited to help describe the photographs you discover in The Commons on Flickr, either by adding tags or leaving comments.
