Here's an interesting website for anyone with historically significant family photos. HistoryAlbum.com is from the folks at the Mary Evans Picture Library in England. The Mary Evans Picture Library is a image stock house, one that supplies images for reproduction. They've taken that concept and applied it to family photos. You can upload your images, create albums and even sell copies of your photographs for a fee. It's an interesting concept. If you're interested, definitely read the FAQ's which describe the resolution and size of the digital images to upload. Make sure you can upload large files though. The basic image size for reproduction is 24 MB uncompressed and 3600 pixels long. 30% of the selling price is yours but checks are issued in English pounds. I didn't see anything on the website that said you had to reside in the British Isles to post pictures. I'm not aware of any companies in this country that offer the same service. Let me know if I've missed something.
