Next up from the Flickr Commons are some public domain images courtesy of the Royal Library, Denmark. One of the three sets in its photostream contains images by photographer Sven Türck (1897-1954) from the 1930s and 1940s. When Türck died, The Royal Library acquired much of his work.

It’s been a long time since this blog’s last batch of pictures from the CIA World Factbook. To review, the Factbook is a great source for public domain maps and pictures of flags, as well as information for nations of the world recognized by the US. For some countries, there are a handful of photographs as well.
Accompanying each photo thumbnail is this statement:
Factbook photos – obtained from a wide variety of sources – are in the public domain and are copyright free.
