During my flickr lurking, I happened to come across a quite fascinating project sponsored by the National Archives. History Happens Here! implores folks to “create (their) own augmented reality” by inserting a historic photograph from the NARA collections into a modern day photograph. Some of the results are quite striking. I hope to spark discussion about the manner in which this project demonstrates how the web- and how flickr in particular-create the opportunity for examining historical resources in an especially provocative way. Particularly in the case of somewhat controversial images such as this one.
