Friends:

The Commons is a collection of photographs donated by more than 100 libraries and archives hosted on Flickr.

To have their photographs accepted, the institution must state that there are "no known copyright restrictions" for the photographs.

Photos are searchable by institution and topic.  When I searched on "contagion" I retrieved over 900 images--many of them were prints or similar images, not just photos.
