Saw this site on a genealogy blog - it's a bit like Pinterest, but photos only, relating them to places.

Large number of museums and history organisations worldwide have already uploaded some of their archives, but there are lots of individuals too.

You can create collections (photos on a topic, geographical area, family, etc), tours (which are photos that follow a place through time), and maps which lets you look at photos of a particular place.

A nifty feature is called Repeats, which matches old photos with new ones of the same place, and a slider that lets you change the date.

You can browse without signing up, and joining is free. I'm trying it out, so I'll try and remember to let you know how I get on!

Their partner for mapping is Google.
