Worth taking a look! You never know what you could find in vintage photos and illustrations. Some of it may just be interesting, some of it you might be able to make some really unique graphics with!

Breed a middle Eastern breed? This may be what they looked like in 1838. Given that one is clearly palomino I think they may be Akhal-Teke in origin.

Even if you no can graphics, if you see something you like, you could just slap a credit on it and go. I think there's quite a few images in there that are fine for use as-is... Not so much the ones I linked, but some of the wildlife illustrations they have are absolutely lovely.

That 200 year old pic of the dog looks more like a welsh springer spaniel to me. Especially with the info they have on that photo.
