Is it a crossword? Is it a barcode? Nope. Will it change my life? Well, maybe. A little bit. It’s a QR code. You may have seen these in newspaper adverts. Basically it’s a barcode which a smartphone can read in order to perform a function – which can be ringing a number, sending an SMS, or taking your browser to a url. All you need is a smartphone with a QR code reader installed – these apps can be found for free. Take the snap and you’ll end up at our Flickr profile.
This code will take your browser to our set of photos of Tib Street in 1959. Soon the Archive+ team will be hitting Tib Street with a bagful of these codes. So look out for this code on stickers in shops up and down Tib Street!
