1st Ever Flickr Commons Meetup: National Maritime Museum

Posted by zyrcster in News

On Wednesday, February 11, a few Flickrites joined with the staff at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England, for a Flickr Commons meetup. Rebecca Higgitt first gave a talk, then the group was given a sneak preview of prints in the Royal Observatory’s photographic collection that will be added to the Commons in the near future. The group also took a tour of the ROG buildings, ending with the crew venturing to the Union Pub for refreshment and Commons discussion.

Anna Graf (our group’s founder) says,

A great day was had by all.

Thanks to James, Natasha, Lucinda, Sam and Fiona from the NMM for making this happen!
