As you may have noticed, we love photos! We’re proud of our 1,399 mainly historical photos that we have put on flickr. I’m pleased to say though, that the Internet Archive has put 619,833 photos on flickr and they all appear to be copyright free!
Each photo is well referenced, giving the title of the book, year of publication, authors, subjects and publisher. You can click through to their website to read the entire book. There is also some text from the book on each flickr, helping you understand the context the image was used in.
If you are a professional or an amateur family historian this will be a great resource for illustrating reports and websites to help tell your family story.
Included are photos of places and people (including Scotland) but also machinery from around the world, maps, graphs and much, much more.
