LIFE Image Bank
Google has teamed up with the now defunct LIFE magazine to digitize their massive image bank including many images that never actually made it to print. Awesome! Talk about a treasure trove of amazing historic photos. Next time someone comissions you to do a portrait of Walt Disney or the Wright Bros you know EXACTLY where to go. HERE.
Here's another site an art director directed me to a ways back (when in fact I DID need pics of the Wright Bros). The library of Congress has an awesome (if not even more extensive) collection of historic images as well.
Check that out HERE!
