Restrictions on The
Northwood Collection Photos
Nearly all of the Northwood Collection photos are available for purchase as prints in various formats and sizes. The only print format which is restricted is digital. Requests for digital prints are dealt with on a case by case basis..
Some of the photos in the Northwood Collection Gallery are not available as prints because of sensitivity.
Some of the photos are sensitive because of subject, cultural or association matters. Availability of these photos is on a case by case basis.
All of the Northwood Collection photos are online so people have the opportunity of being united with their family, history or location.
The Northwood Collection is not just a group of photos, there is a large computer database where any information that can be found on the photos is collected and recorded for future generations.
The people who now know anything about these photos are in their 80's. So to obtain this information before it is lost forever we need to use every means at our disposal which includes displaying the photos online.
When the older people see the photos it awakens their memories and they enjoy sharing their knowledge with others.
For the above to happen we need to show all the photos in the Northwood Collection and we apologise for any offence caused by this. However if anyone can identify any particular photo and has information about it we are always interested in updating the database.
We would then consider on a case by case basis as to what restrictions, if any, should be placed on that photo and the accompanying information.
Although the original Northwood photos are now in the public domain, there are copyright restrictions on the photos images in the Northwood Collection, because of the restoration work done on them.
Because a local historian was involved in collating and recording any information on the photos there is a copyright restriction on any accompanying information.
