I think the pictures from the opener are some that the creators came accross. They give the show that compforting feel right in the beginning. I really dont know though ha.

I'm almost positive that some of the pictures were made specifically for the show.

The picture of Truman with the newspaper is a famous photograph. The pictures that correspond to the performers were well chosen as they relate in some way to the characters. The ones of Frasier and Lilith may indeed have been made specifically for the series. The one of Woody is really uncannily like Woody Harelson. Funny that they never had a picture for Sam Malone.

They certainly did. The mustached bartender was used, from season six on.

no one seems to know where any of them came from.
the verse half of the theme had drawings...obviously, the cheers exterior ones were created specifically for the show. i assume that the interior drawings were too. this goes for the logo pic too, as well as the Starring/Ted Danson/Shelley Long drawing

all of the actual photos (starting w/ the cast pics, except for Ted and Shelley in seasons 1-5), I personally think, are from some archive somewhere of turn-of-the-century pics. i dont think any of them were taken specifically for the show.
