US Federal Government Public Domain Images
Most of the links will take you to on-line images.
Others will provide information on how to obtain images.
Note: Most images on U.S.
Federal Government web pages are in the "public domain" (which means they have
no copyright restrictions). If an image is not restricted and does not say it is
copyrighted, then it is probable that it is in the public domain. In some
instances, especially with printed publications, the right to use copyrighted
photographs or images may have been purchased specifically for that publication.
