Many people send me pictures for this site and I am unable to verify the source of all the pictures, so if you see a picture that is your copyright please e-mail me and I will remove it on the next site update if it is your wish or I can credit you. This is purely a hobby site and brings together thousands of pictures so people can use them for research purposes or just enjoy looking at old ships. Because the copyright of these pictures is held by thousands of people or is lost in obscurity I am not in a position to give permission for the use of any of the pictures on this site.
I do not supply, buy or sell pictures and postcards. To obtain a picture, please use one of the many ship picture suppliers that can be found in shipping magazines and on the Internet. I am also not an encyclopedia about old ships or shipping companies - please no more enquiries about details of old ships - try Google or the Miramar Register or join one of the many shipping forums on the Internet.
I welcome e mails telling me about spelling mistakes, duplicate pictures or errors on this site, or if you want send me old ship pictures for the gallery. You are welcome to link to this site but please no more requests for a reciprocal link otherwise I would be always updating the site. I occasionally change the page references as more pictures are added so if you link to an individual ship picture, you may find the link may become broken over time.
As none of the pictures are mine and they come from thousands of unknown sources I am not in a position to give permission to use any picture. Many people send me pictures that are too small to use on the site. If you send me pictures, please try and make the native resolution not less than 1,000 pixels on the longest side. (Make sure you scan it not less than that size and don’t just enlarge it in software!!)
PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME QUESTIONS ABOUT OLD SHIPS - I HAVE NO TIME TO ANSWER THEM.
MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SENDING ME VERY SMALL PICTURES WHICH I CANNOT USE. PLEASE SEND ANY PICTURES AT GREATER THAN 1,000 PIXELS.
