The Rights and reproductions page (retrieved September 18, 2008) asserts "With a few exceptions, the Library is not aware of any U.S. copyright protection (see Title 17, U.S.C.) or any other restrictions in the materials in An American Time Capsule." As this image was first published in the United States before 1922, I believe this image is in the public domain.
