Pond 5 Public Domain Project

Pond 5 is a major supplier of media clips and a good place to sell your own stock footage, images, music and sound effects. But, in addition to the media they have for sale, they have established a section of public domain media that is available for download at no cost. You’ll have to set up a free account to download the clips, but it’s worth the effort. Most of the clips and stills appear to be European and there are a lot of WWII vintage items.
