The National Archives of Norway has published a large collection of photographs from both private and public archives on Flickr. The archives span from 1860 to modern times.

All photographs have been published to the Flickr Commons, meaning they are distributed without copyright restriction. Flickr users are openly invited to provide annotations to the growing collection in an attempt to bring further meaning to the images.

The archives depict may unique aspects of Norweigan history, including “royalty and celebrities, photos of beautiful Norwegian nature and scenery, documentation of industry, historical events like World War II or the Nordic World Ski Championships of 1966, and Norwegian development during the last century”.
