    I just came across This Post that discusses a new database on Flickr where you can search over 2.5 million public domain images from books and other publications dating to 500 years old.

    Of course you can go right to Flickr but the above linked article shows exactly how to navigate the database... which is super easy after the first try.

      This is excellent - thanks for sharing.

      If you want to search Flickr in general for Creative Commons images (i.e. free to re-use with attribution), I have found the best method to be via the CC search engine, here: http://search.creativecommons.org/

    This is an interesting source for images. I thought it would be helpful to genealogy as well.  However, when I put in some names, I got some very recent images (someone who died in 2013), so you do have to be careful with what you get.
