Loads of you have been writing about us

Mashable, Good, TIME and the New York Times are amongst the lovely people who have written about us.

New partners

60 archives, libraries and museums have come on board since July and started to share their collections and some are using Historypin to solicit help in identifying forgotten places. See what’s going on in Brooklyn, New York City.

Universities are using Historypin to recreate snapshots of their campuses over the decades and engage their alumni and news agencies are using Historypin to revisit events in local history, gather recollections, and document how things have changed.
Some of our favourites things that have been going on in communities….

A fantastic inter-generational event at Billericay School in Essex, UK.

Loads of stuff going on in Reading (Berks, UK) in the run up to the launch of our first full on local Historypin project.

A dedicated Historypin month by the brilliant Culture Themes.

A great 3-day intergenerational workshop with Magic Me in Tower Hamlets – see some of the photos and stories that were shared and pinned.
