Tips for finding photos

  • Search your social media: try your instagram feed, facebook, picasa or flickr accounts
  • Find historical photos on Flickr Commons, The Library of Congress, Angel Island Immigration Station and Ellis Island
  • For modern photos, search Flickr Creative Commons (if you find a photo, don't forget to credit the source)
  • Still looking? Explore the amazing photo collections of the New York Public Library and the Callisphere California Cultures collections. (For photos taken after 1924, check to make sure they are in the public domain.)
