    Peggy, thanks for the great sources! One can never have enough of that :)

    Do you know about It has good photos and all are assigned the new CC0 licence of Creative Commons, meaning it is really public domain and no attribution to the original author or backlink is required for any use, also for commercial applications.

    Cheers, Simon!
