Actually, that is the benefit of giving Commons access to archives of
images. Access by Commons under its license conventions gives access to
everyone and results in all interesting images going viral.

There are images of little or no value, as anyone who has viewed an old
photo album of family photos that has become disassociated from its
family knows.
