InaugurationScrapbook.comInauguration has come, yet it is far from gone. The event will be remembered for a long, long time, and sites such as this one have surfaced to let those who were there share their photographs with the ones that couldn’t make it to Washington D.


C. on that eventful day.

In addition to that, the website includes photographs of things that were done by Americans who could not make it to the Inauguration itself, but which joined the celebration in their home towns in their own way.

As you can imagine, the site groups together the most viewed images and the pictures that have received the highest ratings, whereas the ones that have been added more recently are equally spotlighted. Random images are also rotated, so that you can see different angles at a mere glance.

All in all, the site allows anybody to see the Inauguration through the lenses of Americans all over the country. Do not hesitate to give it a try in order to refresh your memories, or in the event there is a contribution you can make. In Their Own Words

“This site was built over a couple of days right after the 2009 presidential inauguration by a group of Obama-supporters/friends in various states. We were unable to make it to D.C for various reasons but still wished to engage in the moment. There are many (infact millions!) of other people that wished to make it to D.C., but were unable due to family, work, and other obligations. We therefore created this site for anyone to share, view, and vote on images capturing that special series of days. Whether you were in D.C. or not, you probably did something special. Yes, YOU! Because really, this was the people’s election.”
