Recently, Wellcome Library released 100,000 high-resolution images into the public domain. The scans include ‘manuscripts, paintings, etchings, early photography and advertisements’, and collectively serve as a vast visual resource for the history of health and medicine. The collection is available under a Creative Commons licence that allows you to download and reuse any image for personal or commercial purposes, without charge.
Among the archive are plenty of images of general London interest. We’ve included some of our favourite discoveries in the gallery below.
