Spencer1.jpg(283 × 408 pixels, file size: 35 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg)

This image is a digital reproduction of a photograph depicting Herbert Spencer. The photograph, made in the 1880s and no later, is in the possesion of the uploader and this was used to produce the scan. The subject died in 1903. This description also forms the basis of the irrefutable claim that this image is Public Domain. Any attempt to ascribe or claim copyright is therefore theft and no action can conceivably be undertaken to delete this image. Attempts to do so will undermine the good faith required by the wikimedia community>

Date circa
Source The source is given as the uploader of this image who describes the photograph as "Carte-de visite photo" and to be dated within the 1880s. The great age of this image and the death of the subject beyond the reach of any claims of ownership put this well with in the Public Domain. A tag attached to this file erroneously suggested that this image might fall within the scope of some form of ownership. It can not.
