I would regard Mike Lowe's site (worldiris.com) as
the closest thing to definitive on pictures of historic iris.

In addition to excellent pictures of Mme. Chereau and Ma Mie

blue/purple historic plicatas:

There are also comparison pages for other colors: yellows, variegatas,
amoenas, and one just for Prairie Sunset :-)
