If you want to illustrate your family history with relevant images this is an extremely cheap way of accessing high quality downloads. I paid a lot more for identical images from other sites.

Look and Learn is a London-based picture library specialising in educational images.

While the picture library is free to browse, they make a charge of £2 per image for personal and educational use.

I found plenty of images of the areas of London that my ancestors lived in.
