Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has released a new photo album on Flickr entitled Framing Canada. These images highlight aspects of Canadian heritage and history as portrayed through photographs and artworks. Organized into thematic albums, the LAC images they contain are easy to browse and make lesser-known representations of Canada's history available.
Past albums have included such themes as Canadian participation and activities during the First World War, Irish immigration to Canada, as well as immigration and quarantine facilities at Grosse Île. These collections highlight different periods of Canadian history and reveal Canada's transformation into the modern nation it is today.
LAC encourages visitors to explore our photo albums on Flickr.com, which allows people to comment, tag, and share content. Visitor participation and commentaries will help to develop a rich dialogue about the resources presented by Library and Archives Canada.
