Great Photos on the Internet to Show Your Kids!

Here are some photos from the National Archives Ansel Adams collection (one near Death Valley, the other of the Grand Canyon)…

The Library of Congress has a Catalog of Online Prints & Photographs. (Many of those photos are in the public domain.)

They’ve teamed up with Flickr to post some of their popular photos. Below is a photo of President Taft with his sister and her kids, from the early 20th century. It’s from Flickr.

Google has teamed up with Time Inc. to make available on the internet millions of photos from Life Magazine. The photos span from the 1860’s to the 1970’s. You can look at the photos – of course – but I believe they’re still copyright protected.

I must say, it’s interesting to view some of the wonderful photos. Here are links to a couple of my favorites…

Mark Twain (1904)

Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova (1900)

It’s worth taking your child to these sites to see some wonderful historic photos – or simply check ‘em out yourself!
