As with all the collections on The Commons, the images are available to use with no known copyright restrictions.

Among the gems, you’ll find over 200 landscapes by Ansel Adams and a selection of photos from the Documerica Project – the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)‘s document of environmental problems, EPA activities and everyday life in the 1970s.

There are many other historical photographs and documents – it’s well worth a look.”
