Welcome to Pastpin, a 1Heritage project.

Pastpin lets you suggest the where and when of 6,541,632 vintage images via the wonderful Flickr Commons.

1. Find an image of a place you recognise and see if you can pin it to the map.

2. Suggest the date of an image if you can work it out from the image or description.

The goal is to make all the images searchable by where and when they were originally taken. All your contributions are available to the institutions that hold the item so they can improve their record.

Pastpin was originally inspired by James Morley's site and seeks to increase awareness and access to these great images from the past.

Thanks for checking out Pastpin!
