Help to make thousands of historical images of Prague available to public in a virtual gallery that will be at disposal to anybody.
From old engravings to colorful paintings to beautiful photographs - all depicting everyday life among amazing architecture buildings. Czech libraries made a large number of old prints released before 1920 available without copyright at their websites to public. There are many old images hidden among hundreds or million pages of text. Help to collect them and make easily available to general public, researchers, historians and artists. The collection will tell the story of development of a modern city, its growth and flourishing. The story, which we have only sensed that it exists. The old depictions of the city reveal the history of the forefathers and their surrounding of which we do not understand much.
A website is already set up to be able to contain such high number of material at https://www.historicka-praha.cz/
Your contribution will be used to extract images from these sources and make it available at the site. In such a manner images will be indexed by search engines and will be visible connected to their location at a map. To them will be attached present day photo for comparison. The goal for the amount of contribution is to get 10 000 images to the site.
