Part of Brookhaven, Sufffolk Co. L.I.
English: A scarce example of Fredrick W. Beers’ map of the southern part of Brookhaven, Long Island, New York. Published in 1873, this magnificent map covers Great South Bay and East Bay and along the coast from Blue Point and Patchogue Bay eastward past Bellport, Smith Point, Moriches to Eastport. Covers Fire Island from Watch Hill to Swan Island, detailing the homes of John Smith, H. F. Osborne Gunning, G. Terry and S. Havens. Extends inland as far north as Middle Island, Coram Hill, Manorville and Calverton. Notes the proposed route of the South Side Long Island Railroad. This is probably the finest atlas map of Brookhaven to appear in the 19th century. Prepared by Beers, Comstock & Cline out of their office at 36 Vesey Street, New York City, for inclusion in the first published atlas of Long Island, the 1873 issue of Atlas of Long Island, New York.

(Reusing this file)
This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain

This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 70 years or less.

Dialog-warning.svg You must also include a United States public domain tag to indicate why this work is in the public domain in the United States. Note that a few countries have copyright terms longer than 70 years: Mexico has 100 years, Jamaica has 95 years, Colombia has 80 years, and Guatemala and Samoa have 75 years. This image may not be in the public domain in these countries, which moreover do not implement the rule of the shorter term. Côte d'Ivoire has a general copyright term of 99 years and Honduras has 75 years, but they do implement the rule of the shorter term. Copyright may extend on works created by French who died for France in World War II (more information), Russians who served in the Eastern Front of World War II (known as the Great Patriotic War in Russia) and posthumously rehabilitated victims of Soviet repressions (more information).

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain in the United States. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.
