I love archival photos.This is an interesting series, but the images seem to be riddled with artifacts from re-sizing or something.

I am not sure if you are aware of http://www.morguefile.com/ but its a decent resource of CC images that can be used freely, either for manipulation or artistic reference. The nice thing is that most are of a decent resolution to work with so that your end product doesn't have to be up-sampled.

Thanks but morguefile looks dead! I searched for Marathon Bombing-the subject I've been working with of late and it came up with a goose egg---certainly it can't touch BING.

Now for your archival photos--here's the best--from the archives of the NY Times also gratis:
