KHS Digitised Archive Images on Flickr [and how to view]
To date KHS has over 2000 digitised archival photographic images, stored, organised, sorted and documented with information, which are made accessible to all using the Flickr platform. The best way to see what KHS has on Flickr is to View by "Collections" from www.flickr.com/photos/khs-museum/collections/ You can also view by "KHS Subject Themes" ("Collection") or by "KHS (Named) Archive Collections".
KHS also administers the following "Groups," which others can contribute to. If you have a Google, Facebook or Yahoo identity, there is no need to sign up to Flickr. IE. Sign in with one of the above-mentioned identities to interact.
Boab - Images of the Australian boab tree (Adansonia gregorii). Photographs from anyone of the amazing boab trees endemic to northern Australia.
Have You Lived in Kununurra? - Historical photographs of your time in the Ord River Region as well as contemporary photographs of Kununurra reunions and outings..
Have You Lived in the Kimberley? - Historical photographs of your time in the Kimberley (Broome, Derby, Fitzroy Crossing, Halls Creek, Kununurra, Wyndham, as well as all stations and communities).
The KHS Archival photographs on the Flickr site, have now had over 1,992,000 image views (Dec. 9th 2016) so soon will be our second Millionth View (We had started in 2011 and had 300,000 views by July 2013).

Flickr is a web platform for the storage and organisation of digital images, into "Albums" (formerly "Sets"), "Collections" (of Albums), "Groups," and "Galleries," which also allow comments and social interaction from other users. As an example people can assist by identifying un-named people or places. You can interact with the KHS Flickr site if you have a Google, Facebook or Yahoo identity, there is no need to sign up to Flickr. IE. Sign in with one of these identities to interact or add your own comments, additional stories, or corrections. There is no need to sign in to Flickr to view the images.
About these Slideshows
The slideshows that have been "embedded" (from a different website) here on this page are in the old Flickr "Slideshow" format. Once the slideshow is playing - Use the 4 arrow gadget in lower right corner to go "Full Screen" as well there is a very useful feature that is not available on Flickr's new slideshow, that you can use to "Show Info" (or not) for a detailed information overlay on each image - selectively. Click on the descriptions to go to that image on Flickr.
Here on the KHS website I am using the original Flickr Slideshow platform (which is far better than the new backward-step taken by Yahoo new version slideshow that is in use on Flickr now that shows no image information), as this old version has a feature not in the new version - that is information available on each photo (click ‘Show Info’ once playing) as they move forward.
If these embedded slideshows do not work on your browser – try another browser or allow/activate Adobe Flash and all should work. Once the slideshow is playing - use the ‘Four Cornered Gadget’ in the bottom right hand side of the image (on mouseover) - to go fullscreen. It may please other Flickr users to know that the old slideshow platform still works when embedding on an external (from Flickr) website eg. kununurra.org.au. Let me know if you want the code for embedding the old version slideshow or any tips to get there - Contact KHS by email - AB for KHS 9 XII 2016
Besides the main KHS "Photostream" - Also see "KHS Sets," "KHS Collections" (A Collection of KHS Archive Collections eg. "Kevin Richards 35mm Slide Collection") as well as a "Collection" of "KHS Subject Themes."
Also See - About the information for each image (Metadata in Images), which once embedded means no filling in fields on Flickr, as Flickr takes the embedded information from the image.
From May 2013 Flickr is now FREE for ALL with 2Tb of free storage space per user.
