The British Library has a new website, Collect Britain, with images and sounds of just about anything British you could want.

The section "Collections" has 18 collections of images and 1 of sounds, such as: Victorian Britain, regional accents, Caribbean plantation life, sheet music, etc. There are 6 virtual exhibitions which expand on: Caribbean views, expressions of faith, Durham, literary landscapes, and Grimm's Northumberland notebooks. And "Themed Tours" goes into even more detail on: Lost Gardens, the Trigonometric Survey, and the Old East End.

If you are interested in these subjects, or if your clients are, this is a treasure trove. In any case, there are some beautiful images here.
