The British Library has released over a million images onto Flicker Commons. These images are for public use to remix and repurpose. The million images came from 17th, 18th, and 19th century books that Microsoft digitized and gifted back to the British Library to put on the Public Domain. This #POTD is one of the images released that will put you in the Christmas spirit! “The Circle of Love” is on page 17 from Eliza F. Manning’s book, “The Coming of Father Christmas” published in 1894 from F. Warne & Co., London.
