The Australian National Maritime Museum joined Flickr Commons in 2010 to begin a process of making its major photographic collections more accessible to the public.
The first such collection to appear on Flickr Commons is the Australian National Maritime Museum's Samuel J. Hood Studio Collection. Since then, the collections have expanded to include photographs from William J Hall, Harold Nossiter, David Moore, Poul C Poulsen and many more.
The Australian National Maritime Museum is also inviting the public to help to identify scenes, vessels and persons appearing in the photographs.
