Calisphere, Free Domain
Isn’t this photo great? I found it at Calisphere when I was looking for historical photos listed as public domain.
Here are more organizations offering data from the public domain, meaning no one claims ownership and the items are free to use. Be sure to check for usage limitations. And be sure to give credit to whom credit is due.
- U.S. Government Official Portal offers state photo galleries covering government department image collections
- University of Washington Cities & Buildings Database is a collection of digitized images of buildings and cities from around the world
- EASE History-Michigan State University supports U.S. history with hundreds of historical videos and photographs
- National Science Foundation offers images and other media from its gallery for personal, educational and nonprofit/non-commercial use.
