Featured thrice before on Mefi, in a peripheral role.

Well it's the first time I've seen it, and as a sign over the doorway of a used book store in my neighbourhood says, "Any book you've never read before is a new book".

Thanks for the post, Gyan.

The Library of Congress' American Memory Project offers an even larger collection of images (as well as books, sheet music, etc.), unwatermarked and freely downloadable.

Nice. I appreciate that they 1) Have a separate section on cattle, since apparently neither the Agriculture section nor the Animals section could contain them; 2) have a section on Social Workers that has four pictures of Mother Jones.

That's a nice collection they have there, thanks for the post. Too bad the greedy bastards charge $35.00 for an 8" x 10".

Thanks for the link, Gyan. And, ryanshepard the AMP is totally cool, too. I'm digging through the Printed Ephemera pages, and loving it.
