What I've done is download jpgs I've liked over the years and used the "My Pictures Slideshow" option under Control Panel/Display/Screensavers. (Note - that's in XP - don't know if Vista or any of the other current OS offer a similar feature.)

If your OS does not support something like that, you may want to download webshots and create your own photo library. That should do the same thing for you.

I now have an unlikely melange of vintage family photos, holiday snaps, vintage film and stage (including moi) - and the dogs. Whenever I return to my desk, there's always something to make me smile.

Doctor Macro has large scans:

I also love the vintage photos at Shorpy.com. Rarely have celebrities in them, but incredible slices of real life anywhere from the 1890s to the 1960s.
