Harborough Museum puts photographs online

As part of Renaissance East Midlands’ ‘MuBu’ project, Harborough Museum is putting hundreds of its 10,000 strong collection of photographs online. The pictures can be viewed on Flickr.

Usefully, the pictures have been tagged so that you can see where the pictures were taken. So I can be sure that the Bricky Tip shown in this photograph of Little Bowden is now the wilderness called Windy Ridge that we are trying to save from development.

MuBu is a new scheme designed to connect museums and audiences through digital projects. To see some of the projects being run across the East Midlands.
