Historypin

Historypin is a website and social media tool designed to bring millions of people together from across different generations, cultures and countries; to share glimpses of the past and eventually build up a larger story of human history.

Historypin operates in partnership with Google and uses Google Maps to 'pin' historic photographs of people, places and events, from across the globe.

Shellharbour City Libraries and Museum have added some of our Shellharbour Images photograph collection to the Histroypin map, and have made a channel on the website. So far we've added over 100 'pins' of people, places and events significant to Shellharbour City.

Happy searching,
