Split Rock Lighthouse seeks pre-1980 vacation pics

The Minnesota Historical Society is seeking family vacation pictures from one of the North Shore of Lake Superior's most popular landmarks, Split Rock Lighthouse.

As part of Split Rock's centennial celebrations, the society is launching a "Vintage Split Rock Lighthouse Pictures" group on the picture-sharing Web-site Flickr.

The society is asking visitors to Split Rock Lighthouse to upload their pre-1980 pictures to the group at Flickr via their own account. Visitors are encouraged to include the story behind the picture, as well as the year it was taken.

It is not intended as a photo contest, but photos submitted before March 31 may be included in an exhibit at the lighthouse this summer.
