70 Million is such a big number!

The sticky buns are flying around here like snuff at a wake. We are all so pleased here at Library Towers that we have reached 70M views on our Flickr stream.

We could not have reached this fantastic number without all of you who come on here day after day to view and comment on the photos from our National Library of Ireland collections. It is a great and ongoing pleasure to share with you these excellent photographs from excellent photographers.

We thank each and every one of you for your continued support.

    congratulations, it's a reflection of how well this site is curated, allowing serious investigations and also the tongue in cheek humour of the dog spotters and barefoot children. The historical records you have revealed are truly culturally and politically significant : I personally have learned a lot about some of the "more minor" players in Irish politics of the 1890s onwards.

    Congratulations, I reached 1 million with my mere 650ish photos, on 5 February 2019. Probably could have achieved sooner, but I keep deleting photos I have become bored with and to keep refreshing my Flickr portfolio. And, the best part, I achieved that without the facility of bots, or social media websites employed to boost views.
