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.

CIA World Factbook Photos, Part 11: Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark

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.
