News Agency Photos From 5 Years Ago

Fri May 11, 2007 12:11 pm

Is there any way I can access some archived news agency (AP, Getty, you know the stuff you'd find on slide shows on Yahoo! News and other websites) photos? Without having to pay that is. I'm not having much luck with their websites. The events I need pictures for took place in 2002, and were covered extensively by all the major agencies.

Try searching the archives of local news agencies, or if the events are local, you can always check with your local library.

This help?

Well those are the kind of pictures I need (captions are going to be useful), and there's a couple in there, but in this case I need LOTS of pictures, not just a few. Thanks though.

That's probably not going to work, the events weren't local. Again, thanks for the suggestion!

Try this site: it's an archive of websites and web pages dating back several years. You can search either by date or by website...
