Other material on this site

The site also contains other material, including images from archives, quotations from books, artwork by local artists. Generally, this can be found online (for instance, on the websites of galleries and museums) and you will always find a link or reference to the source and, where it applies, the copyright holder. We have been careful not to infringe anyone’s copyright in reproducing work by others on this site. Much of the older material is now in the public domain, while more recent work is covered by the fair use exception. However, if we have inadvertently included anything here outside those terms, please let us know and we will remove it.
