Terms governing use, reproduction, and publication

Many of the photographs are stamped with “Centennial Museum, North Vancouver”, “Provincial Museum, Victoria, B.C.”, “Archives of B.C.” (including an identification number) or have the stamp of a particular photographer or photography studio on the verso. It is unknown if Duff had these copies made for personal or research purposes and if he received permission to reproduce the images. It is unknown if MOA has copyright to these images, therefore researchers must contact the official repository of the image and ask for permission to reproduce it.
