  • E. M. Stanton - Cropped from a scan of the original photograph available from the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division website.  The MARC record for this photograph (retrieved July 16, 2009) asserts that there are "no known restrictions on publication."  As the photograph was first published in the United States before 1923, this image is now in the public domain.
  • Eagle (MWCR) - The image description page (retrieved October 23, 2008) at Wikimedia Commons asserts that this image is in the public domain because it was first published in the United States before 1923.
  • El Gobernador - Wikipedia's image description page (retrieved October 16, 2008) asserts that because this locomotive was scrapped in 1894, the photo must have been taken before that time, therefore it is in the public domain.
