A good library. A University library for instance. There must be one near you, yes? Getting access is often just a matter of filling out forms or paying a nominal fee. Sometimes you are welcome to simply walk in and make yourself at home. How do I know this? I'll done a lot of research. You'd be surprised what a good librarian can do for you. Makes friends with them. Many of them love to help people. And the more obscure the project, the more interested they can be.
If this is a commercial project, make sure you obtain permission to use the images you aquire. If it is in the public domain, however, it is fair game. What you don't want is to be sued by the owner. After all, there is something called intellectual copyright.
