What is RetroPicts?
RetroPicts is a free historical image library. A free resource for designers, bloggers, developers…all kinds of creative.
Quality high resolution image stock that is free to use for personal or commercial work. All content is scanned from original photographs, vintage postcards and printed ephemera. Much of the content on this site is produced from items over a hundred years old.
Other than some adjustment to saturation and in some instances the levels, the scans are left untouched. The patinia of up to a hundred odd years has been left as a part of the character of the images. In addition to the photographic material there is a section of ephemera, interesting printed material from period magazines and books.
This site will continue to grow. If you’d like to be kept up to date with content then like on Facebook or follow on Twitter.
THE ONE KEY LIMITATION TO USE IS THAT RETROPICTS MATERIAL MUST NOT BE TAKEN AND SOLD OR REDISTRIBUTED ELSEWHERE WITHOUT EXPRESS PERMISSION. To do so would not be cool…it would be very, VERY uncool.
