  • Madam Queen - Cropped from the original file available at the Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division; see also this photo's description page in the Flickr Commons project. Photograph by Jack Delano, Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, March 1943. This photo was taken by an employee of the US Federal Government while performing his official duties and is therefore under public domain. Further, the Rights and Reproductions statement for the FSA/OWI pictures collection (retrieved March 30, 2009) asserts "Photographs in this filing series (LC-USF35 and LC-USW36) are considered to be in the public domain."
  • Marion Wentworth - Cropped from a scan of the original photo in the collection of Norb & Marie Novocin of Estate Auctions, Inc. As the locomotive number 28 is visible on the smokebox front, this photograph must have been taken before 1885 when the locomotive was renumbered. Photographer unknown; I believe this photo to be in the public domain because my understanding of current US copyright law is that photographs first published in the US before 1923 are public domain.
