The ARTSTOR image database has recently incorporated the photo library of the Magnum Agency. And it already had a treasury of great images of interest to scholars. Copyright and use restrictions mean that you can post these on course websites limited to the Stanford audience, but not on public sites, which is why I haven't directly displayed any photos below, just some tantalizing descriptions!
