Description
English: Public domain photo.

Source information is necessary so we can verify the image is contemporaneous (which would make it ) Superm401 - Talk 01:03, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Public domain photo of portrait of Attucks, artist unknown. Image from w:en:Bridgewater State College archive in w:en:Bridgewater, Massachusetts.

If the source is unknown, we can't verify that it's PD. We need to show it was published before 1923, or that the artist died 70+ years ago. Superm401 - Talk 19:12, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

According to w:en:Getty Images ([1], but this link may expire), the image was published on w:en:2 January, w:en:1754. It was published before 1923, and the author died before 1907, so the image is clearly . Superm401 - Talk 19:39, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

I added a better version of the image, from w:en:Encyclopedia Brittanica/Getty. Superm401 - Talk 20:02, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Getty Images' claim of a 1754 publication date for the image is improbable. It's not likely that an obscure 18th century "mulatto" runaway slave would have had a professional portrait done 16 years before the event that made him a legend. My guess is that the date given is a typo, and that "1854" was intended. That would be more believable because Attucks became a symbol during the Abolitionist movement at that time. (Uncle Tom's Cabin was published in 1852.) If so, the image is still clearly public domain, although not a genuine portrait made during Attucks's lifetime. —Kevin Myers 18:49, 17 November 2007 (UTC)
You're right. That doesn't make sense. Nevertheless, if it was made 1854, it's still . Superm401 - Talk 02:18, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
