Flickr Commons Rights Statement

The Keene Public Library and the Historical Society of Cheshire County are jointly digitizing our historical image collections and are putting those that are free from copyright restrictions onto the Flickr Commons. They are marked “No known copyright restrictions” because one of our institutions holds the copyright and/or we believe that they are in the public domain.

Although we believe that these Commons images are in the public domain, there may be other third party rights that apply to them in regards to privacy and publicity issues. You  are responsible for obtaining permission to use any of these photos, including but not limited to obtaining the permission of the person or people in the photo. Keene Public Library and the Historical Society of Cheshire County can not be responsible for any liability that results from your use of these images.

These photos are meant to be used for personal, educational, or research purposes. Please link back to us if you share them on the Internet.
