RE: A question of copyright

As I read the copyright law regarding images, any image made before 1921 is now in the public domain.

Hello List,
I have purchased several lantern slides taken between
1880 and 1920. They are wonderfully 'pictorial' images of various
bits of old England. I think that they would make lovely gumprints. I
wonder what copyright protection these images would have given that the
taker is as dead as mutton? Are any gumprints I may make saleable
(in principal of course) ?
