Hi to all.

I'm Andrea and I'm an italian chemist. I write here 'cause I need help about a picture of the three huge propellers of the titanic

[Photo deleted due to copyright issues. MHS]

I'd like to use this photo as frontcover of a chemical scientific journal, but I need to know something about copyrights.
Is it free? If not, can you help me to find who hold the copyrights?

Thanks in advance.
Andrea

Hi,

Never assume a photograph can be used. Even posting an image here without permission from the copyright holder is not allowed. Titanic is not my strong suit, but I do not believe there are any known photographs in existence that show her props, either with three or four blades, so this is almost certainly another liner.

Best,
Eric Longo

As far as I know, the above photograph may be in the public domain but that doesn't make it a certain sure fact. you might be surprised at just how many old photos still come with copyright attatched because the originals are still in the hands of the photographer's lawful heirs.

In another forum Eddie replies that the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum, located in Northen Ireland, holds the copyright and, like Eric said, the picture does not represent titanic's propellers but belong to another vessel.
We wrote to the indicated museum but no reply yet. I hope they'll do it soon.
I'll let you know for any news, by the way.
Thanks for you reply.
Best regards.
Andrea

Since this is the case, I'm going to go ahead and delete the photo. You're welcome to repost it if you get the required permissions.

Oops, I should have put an oar in here when I first saw this Michael. The picture appears twice in ET’s Articles index, Sam Halpern attributes it to the Olympic.

Sorry, Bill
