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.
