And if you are that little bit older, read some inspirational stories showing why it’s never too late!

Thanks to Kalev Leetaru, an American academic, millions of searchable historical images are now available to download on Flickr.
He plans to create a database of 12 million historical copyright-free images; so far he has uploaded 2.6 million, sourced from more than 600 million library book pages.
Most of the images that are in the books are not in any of the art galleries of the world – the original copies have long ago been lost. The pictures range from 1500 to 1922, when copyright restrictions kicked in.
See a selection of the images available in a great display promoting the collection in the RLS College Library.
