Please do not assume that just because we have a large
number of photographs of one location or subject we do not need more.
Additional photographs would always be welcomed simply because each photograph
is a precious snap-shot of time which can never be recaptured. Someone is
always looking for information, often very specific, and it just might be
your photograph(s) that will provides the answer. We hope you have
enjoyed looking at the site and appreciate what we are trying to do in keeping
memories alive of subjects often long gone. We can only make this site better
with the help of other people so if you have or know where we could find more
photographs please email us at Photographs Wanted.
We have a number of locations where we have few, if any,
photographs and therefore are desperate for any photographs whatever their
condition. You may rest assured that your photographs cannot be pirated via
this, or indeed any other web site, because the format of an image on the
Internet is significantly different to a 'normal' scanned digital image. Whilst
the file size of a web photograph would be 35 to 100 KB, the equivalent size of
a digital image suitable for printing a high quality definition photograph
would need to be 3.5 MB, some 1000 times greater. This means that the quality
of a print downloaded from any web site would not be of sufficient quality for
it to be resold as an original image.
For anyone wishing to assist in developing this site by
proving information, writing articles or reporting broken links etc please see
our Contributions page.
All photographs received will remain the copyright of the
source or photographer. If scanned images cannot be sent we would be able to
visit and scan the photographs at your home. Acknowledgments will be made both
in the list of photographers as well as on the
thumbnail image as can be seen.
