Vintage Photochrom Images of Scotland in the 1890s from the Archives of the Library of Congress

The Library of Congress may be closed for business while the federal government figures out in which ladies’ room it lost its purse, but you can still enjoy the many wonderful historic images its hard-working archivists have collected and shared on Flickr‘s The Commons.

Take a trip around Scotland’s fens and spinneys circa 1890 to 1900 courtesy the Library’s still-growing collection of Photochrom travel photographs.
