Over a million images have been scanned and made available for use and remix by the British Library: A Million first steps. See if you can find the original picture this one was remixed off…
The library would like to collaborate with researchers and anyone else with a good idea for how to markup, classify and explore this set with an aim to improve the data and to improve and add to the tagging. (They) are looking to crowd-source information about what is depicted in the images themselves, as well as using analytical methods to interpret them as a whole.
