This bathroom, depicting a bathtub, sink, toilet, and scale, was an image used in a 1918 Norwester magazine advertisement for G. C. Glass Plumbing and the products they carried. The company was created in 1908 as Glass and McCollom Plumbing and is now considered the Grandview Heights business with the longest continuous operation in the community. The business is now simply known as Glass Plumbing.

    Published before 1923 - no copyright

    Yes, we believe this work to be in the public domain due to its publication date.

    For 1918 I'd say that is at least middle class, maybe even edging towards the upper half of middle class.

    Is it possible to change the copyright for the pictures published before 1923? "No known copyright restrictions" sounds vague.

    "No known copyright restrictions" is the rights statement required for all institutions participating in The Commons on Flickr, so we can't change this. You could certainly share your comments with the good folks at Flickr, though :)

    This rule is even noted in Copyright Office Circular 22 which states . . . the U.S. copyright in any work published or copyrighted prior to January 1, 1923, has expired by operation of law, and the work has permanently fallen into the public domain in the United States. For example, on January 1, 1997, copyrights in works first published or copyrighted before January 1, 1922, have expired; on January 1, 1998, copyrights in works first published or copyrighted before January 1, 1923, have expired. Unless the copyright law is changed again, no works under protection on January 1, 1999, will fall into the public domain in the United States until January 1, 2019.

    Yes, that is exactly why we selected these works for The Commons on Flickr. Flickr also provides more information about copyright subtleties within their general Rights Statement for The Commons. And your previous observation was also correct, jamica1, the suburbs of the Tri-Village area were fairly affluent. They were developed as middle and upper-middle class Columbus residents sought to escape the more polluted, increasingly industrialized environment of the city. Development of these suburbs typically paralleled the expansion of the streetcar lines.
