Helsinki City Museum has digitized a collection of over 65,000 photos. They are all available online and free to download and use. You can find photos from our day and age, but they date back to the 19th century and there are some real gems among them.

You can search through individual photos, or explore albums if you prefer that. You can download and use photos any way that you like as long as you credit the source. And if you’d like to hang a print on your wall – you can order prints directly from the website, which is really handy. The prices go between €18 and €40, depending on the size and the finish of your prints.

Here are a few photos that I found particularly interesting, weird, or beautiful while browsing through the gallery.
