Various dates from 1910-1980. Most from the 40's and 50's Various unknown photographers. Most authors assumed dead. All photos assumed unpublished. I am not charging to view these photos. Works enter public domain a certain number of years after publication, but these have yet to be published by the authors, so I assume these are not in the public domain. Questions... May I exhibit the photos. May I sell the original photos.

If it is a legal copy or original, you can display or sell the print that you own. You may not make any additional copies. There are really so many unknown factors to determine whether they are still protected or not.
