Grge Estmn and Flickr

It would surprise no one that the George Eastman House has a terrific collection of photographs. The subjects, genres and photographers in the collection are varied and representative of many of the periods from the short history of the medium. What surprises me is that the George Eastman House chose to put much of it on flickr. Will some one please sell Flickr a vowel? You can see the collection on Flickr HERE. If some one can convince me that Flickr is anything but a bottomless, photo soul sucking, over populated, dumping ground, I am all ears.
