The past few weeks I have been exploring the internet and various blogs to find some great places to get free vintage and graphic images that are copyright free. At the request of a number of people, here is a rather lengthy list of some of what I consider to be the best sites out there.
By far, the best site is http://graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/ This site has hundreds of images, and she adds at least 2 or 3 new images daily.
The remaining sites, in no particular order are as follows:
