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.
Very interesting, Richard. New sources for public domain photos are always helpful. Thank you!
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/
Wow, this is incredibly cool. Thanks for taking the time to share!
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.
Thank you so much for sharing this link. Images in the public domain have great importance.
That's good information...it's always helpful to find a new source for images.Thanks for the link.

If I can't do my own photography, I go to great lenths to credit the source I've used, but I have noticed that some of best Hubbers use a photograph with no credit, then there are others who go to a lot of trouble and time to make sure their photos are credited. Is there something I don't...
