    That being the case, here are several images of early works by Dorothea Lange, signed and dated 1921. Images of these prints are surely not available elsewhere, so enjoy them while you can. The originals were found locally in Sept. 2009.

    I had no idea about those LOC collections, some of them are amazing. I just got completely drawn in to the huge collection of Edward Curtis. Wow. Thanks!

    Farm Security Administration documentary photography was paid for by the US taxpayers. The photographers and support personnel were employed by the US government, and thus also paid by taxpayers. That arrangement places their for-hire works into the public domain, and thus available to the public who paid for them via the Library of Congress.

    But there are limits. I can download a high-resolution digital reproduction file and print my own copy. But if I were to ask the LOC to borrow the original negative for a weekend to print my own copy... ?
