In the newspaper publishing industry, a "morgue" file is where you put all the various items that were used in the preparation of a story, once it's been published. Which is where the inspiration behind the name of the Morgue File web site came from, according to its makers. It styles itself as the morgue file of the Web, from where you can download hundreds of excellent image files that you can use for free without having to credit anyone.
So if you need a decent photo to illustrate a project, web site etc, http://www.morguefile.com/archive is a great place to start your search.
