I went with using the original caption tag on all uploads. The
relative rarity of problematic captions meant that I thought a more
explicit disclaimer was probably overkill, compared to (say) the
Bundesarchiv caveats.

[Wikimedia-l] Picturing Canada: historic Canadian photography now on Commons

2013-07-01 Thread Andrew Gray
Hi all,

Today, the British Library announced the Picturing Canada project to
mark Canada Day (1st July). Those of you who were at GLAM-Wiki in
April may remember this collection: it's a digitisation of the
Canadian Copyright Collection, 1895-1924, covering photographs
deposited for copyright registration in Canada during this period.
There's currently about 2,000 photographs, many of which are
composites of multiple images stuck together; all are available as
full-resolution TIFFs and JPEGs.

There's more files still trickling up - including some interesting
aerial photographs, panoramas, and a collection of official
photographs from WWI - but almost all of the general images are now
online, and we're now just adding the oddities. Including the official
photographs, this will total around 4,000 works. Please do take a look
- there's some marvellous material in there.

funding this, and to Phil Hatfield at the British Library for
championing the collection!
