Discover and discuss the manliest content on the Web

Flickr Commons, a collaboration between the photo-sharing site and the Library of Congress that began in 2008, has released 17 of its most-popular photos to celebrate its fourth anniversary.

The project began as an effort to increase exposure to some of the world’s historic photographic treasures and to crowdsource public knowledge about the archives. The Commons has a “no known copyright restriction” policy, which means the Internet community’s use of the Commons’ images is not limited. Typically, items uploaded to Flickr are the property of their owners.
