Sometimes, you may simply want to find an image relating to the day's events like the historic inauguration occurring today.
For starters you might want to try the Library of Congress's Today in History page. As part of the Library of Congress's American Memory Project, the Today in History page connects different images, documents and Memory Project Collections to the date. For today, January 20, you can find a link to the presidential inauguration collection, I Do Solemnly Swear..., see a manuscript of the poem Robert Frost read at Kennedy's inauguration, the inaugural addresses of past presidents and more.
For something more image based and contemporary, the AP Photo Archive homepage lists the top six categories for U.S. Domestic News, International News, Financial News, and Sports. At the time of this blog posting there were over 600 images relating to today's inauguration alone.
