Stock photo collections

These collections allow you to preview images (sometimes with a watermark) that are available for purchase from the rightsholder. They can be viewed but not downloaded or reused without payment. 

Web Video

YouTube is a gold mine for searching film footage. You might try searching for a year and a broad term like "men's fashion". Aim for primary sources like footage from newsreels or films - but remember that sources created for entertaining audiences can't always be taken at face value.
