20,000+ Public Domain Digital Photos

The USDA Online Photography Center has beautiful digital photos that may be downloaded free! The photos are organized into several galleries such as Animals, Crops, Forestry, Historical, Nutrition, People, Transportation, Washington DC. and more. (Scroll to the bottom of the USDA web page to see the complete list of categories)

The picture I've included is from the Historical gallery and was taken in 1941 in New Hampshire. The caption reads: "The Blue School teacher is a Massachusetts girl, new this year. She boards with the Chandlers for $7.50 a week, receives an annual salary of $800. Most of Landaff teachers don't stay on since if they are well qualified, they can get better paying jobs elsewhere. "

Beautiful scenery, wildlife photos, all taken by professional photographers, and all in the public domain. Check it out for yourself:
