Searching for: Photopress and Pictorial Press – Fleet St London

By July 13, 2013 July 31st, 2013 Will Carleton

This in from a UK institute looking to clear reproduction rights.

In our Archive of Sculptors’ Papers, we have photos of the sculptors Gertrude Hermes and Clare Sheridan, which we would like to reproduce in a forthcoming publication. Copyright for both was assigned to us at the time of purchase.
However, both have backstamps – see images below
I notice both are included in your Photo Agency Directory, and I wonder if you could let me know whether either agency (if they exist by any other name) has retained any copyright interests?

The PPHP has found Pictorial Press – we just need more info, any info! on Photopress.
