Does anyone know a good place to get 50s looking pictures, like Rosie the Riveter style art, or the kind you'd see in old advertisements?  I'm specifically looking for your classic 50's housewife cheerfully scolding the viewer.  That's the best way I can describe it.

Whenever I'm looking for something really specific I do an image search on google. Or I have my DH draw it for me. Usually google does the job, though.

Man, I can't believe I forgot to mention one of the very best places to get your vintage images: Etsy!

Search for "images" or "digital art".

Some sellers I've had great success with are http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5142043 (name: candyconnection22) and http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=46139 (name: piddix).

there are some awesome groups on flickr for vintage images.  Here's one of my favorites for the type you are looking for:
http://flickr.com/groups/lovemyappliance/
...but you can also search "groups" for "vintage advertising" or "vintage illustration". 

i bet you'll find what you're looking for!

Dover Publishing has some nifty clip art.  If you sign up to their mailing list you get "samples" every couple of weeks!
