13 amazing public domain portraits photographs for inspiration

i like many designers keep bunch of folders with images of various things that i find as i’m searching for stock photos or stumbling around the internet or whatever. one of my go-to places to start is the wikkimedia commons. the other day i was browsing through their public domain section when i came across this image, which led me to the source of that image: Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division. Brady-Handy Photograph Collection. http://hdl.loc.gov/loc.pnp/cwpbh.04462. CALL NUMBER: LC-BH832- 821 [P&P]
