Looking for high-res vintage photos

I am designing my own RSVP postcards and am looking for an inexpensive or free, high resolution vintage photo of a couple kissing. Here is a page full of perfect examples:

http://www.artzooks.com/Brand-X-Pictures/Vintage-Glamour/X-157/

The only problem with the above page of photos-they are very expensive ($300). Does anyone know where I can get something like what I am describing? Do any of you have access to stock photo sites for work (that you don't have to pay for)?

I'm really getting frustrated and could use any help I can get.

How fun! I would try Flickr. A lot of the photos are spaceballed (meaning you can't have them!), but many are not. If you're patient, I bet you could find one you like! For instance, a very cursory search gives these non-spaceballed ones:

there's quite a few options from Aching-

if they're not what you want- you can simply try a google image search. It need so be a certain dpi for good reproduction - 300 ideally, 150 minimally. It might be harder to find a higher dpi image on a site but I know I found a few.

another option is to find an image- like a vintage postcard or a vintage film still from a store and then scan it. or you can scan an image out of a book and scan it yourself for proper resolution

many/most stock sites will have their logo on it to prevent unauthorized use

I love this one - obviously from a real wedding, but so beautiful:



Also, there are a lot of really cool photos that aren't actually vintage, but new photos that look vintage. For instance, isn't this one awesome?



That's for you and your airman, Champ! Okay, I'm closing Flickr right now - I have stuff to do! =)
