Week Link

rockwellThis Norman Rockwell is called Fact and Fiction

Recently I was trolling the web for pictures that reflect the feel and reality of earlier times. I stumbled across the mother-lode in the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division. You can search by format, subject or date, find photographs, illustrations, old cartoons, Japanese prints, collections by artist, film stills, old advertisements and copies of famous paintings. Whether you need material for an art project, to spice up a blog, or are just interested in images from an earlier time, this is a fun place to explore.


  1. I checked out the L of C site - very cool stuff, and somewhere I'd never have thought to troll for pictures. Thanks for the info!

  2. Cricket,
    Thanks for the great link. I've bookmarked it for future reference.
