Great way to use local history photos

Someone sent me a link to an approach one council is using with their  historic photos of their local area.  They’ve been doing it to promote conversations about the neighbourhood, spark debate, attract new users to the council’s Facebook page (Redland City Council) and so much more.

The post talks about the thinking behind the idea, some examples of what they’ve done, some surprising outcomes, some tips for success & really good places to get images – libraries – not surprisingly.

Take a look here.  I think it has really great potential for all public libraries with a collection of local historic photos.  Is there anyone out there interested in trialing this locally? Or anyone who is doing something similar that they'd like to share?
