Both tif and jpg format versions of the same scans are included in this category. When adding categories the jpg version is preferred for Wikimedia projects due to size and more accurate rendering of thumbnail versions. To create cropped versions or other derived images, the tifs are normally significantly higher resolution as a starting point. Any derived versions should be created as new jpgs linking back to the original. The Library of Congress writes: "Available online are 39,744 glass negatives and a selection of about 1,600 photographic prints for which copy negatives exist. ... The Library purchased the collection in 1948 from D.J. Culver." The majority of the images in Commons from this collection were uploaded in a batch upload project, see User:Fæ/LOC


The Library of Congress writes: "There are no known copyright restrictions on the photographs in the George Grantham Bain Collection. Publicity rights may apply."
