Library and Archives Canada has posted a number of World War I images to Flickr alongside other late Victorian and Edwardian material (via Boing Boing). I am particularly taken with an Empire Marketing Board poster ad for Irish Free State bacon and Australian sultanas.

My paternal grandfather was at Vimy. I wonder if I'd recognize him if he were in any of these pictures.
I am dismayed to see our Library & Archives Canada tends to upload at the smallish 600-700 pixel resolution, while the Library of Congress to our south generally manages 1024 pixels or better.

Cool images though, thanks for pointing it out.
