I see what others are saying, but I tend to side with Dennis on this one. Someone somewhere sold that photo to the antique store, and knew they were parting with it (whether the original photographer or a family member...I guess we could argue whether a family member had the legal right to sell it here on the People's Court). I have seen this happen many times with slide traders over the years-- they find their work online or elsewhere after a slide they traded away makes it somewhere and someone publishes it.

I did what BUFFIE was asking about with a family photo that was passed down to me because of my interest in trains. It was taken by a professional photographer now that I think about it, but I see it as our family's property and something I shared here for pure enjoyment, not compensation. This is a flatbed scanned 8x10, FWIW.
