You can download and view curated Digital Collections from the Library of Congress. The collections include: books, newspapers, manuscripts, prints and photos, maps, musical scores, films, sound recordings and more that are believed to be in the public domain.
Here are some of the topics covered: maps and exploration, cars, travel, architecture, Japanese fine prints, Holidays, public domain films from the National Film Registry, and children’s books.
Most of the collections are USA - centered, but here are a few that are closer to home:
Matson (G. Eric and Edith) Photograph Collection - This collection is a rich source of historical images of the Middle East. The majority of the images depict Palestine (present day Israel and the West Bank) from 1898 to 1946.
And here is a link to Library of Congress Free to Use and Reuse Sets.
