NYPL Digital Collection


The New York Public Library has recently enhanced access to all public domain items in Digital Collection so that EVERYONE can enjoy, reuse and download high resolution  beautiful photographs. There are over 180,000 items in their digital collections!


This is a HUGE resource, students. Use it. Be inspired. Travel through history. Explore. 

These images could be used in artwork and designs, as inspiration, or even as a free, downloadable art to frame for your space.

Digital Collections

I downloaded a few above but also really liked this collection seen on Apartment Therapy.

I’m particularly drawn to the Farm Security Administration photos – if you aren’t aware of the FSA and WPA, I’d revisit your history. 😉
