Post cards from the Ordnance and Patton Musuem
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

I have been looking on Epay and have seen a bunch of postcards like this come up.

www.ebay.com/itm/16-26...SwzhVWqTtw

www.ebay.com/itm/N-Pat...SwX~dWs1Qe

www.ebay.com/itm/Fort-...Swo3pWcbif

www.ebay.com/itm/MD-Ab...SwG-1WuToA

Did the museums contract these out to be sold at the museum gift shops? I was looking for historic photos of the P/O museums to use in my articles and these keep coming up, but if they are copyrighted I can not use them. Does anyone know who the printer is? I googled the name on the back to no avail. Or did the P/O musuem just buy to copyright to them.

Thanks.

Isn't it the case that if the museum was a US Military one (like APG) then photos it commissioned are in the public domain (at least in the US)?

I do not know if they are commissioned though, that is the problem. I might beable to ask the curator of the Patton Museum.

Post cards here in the US are usually done by civilian photographers, so at one time they could have been copyrighted. I have no idea how long the copyright last. Just another item the museums and PX sells.

75 years after the photographer dies :/. One of them died in 1998. However, if it was a commission there might be hope as the musuem would own the copyright which would be public domain in the case of the Patton/Ordnance museums.
