Individual images may or may not be out of copyright here; I cannot guarantee that I have it right, sorry. Photographs taken before 1945 in England by British citizens and not published in other European countries are out of copyright. Engravings and drawings that were commissioned (works for hire) are also out of copyright, as are typographic elements. Other items are out of copyright 70 years after the death of the creator, generally.
