The Naval History and Heritage Command (formerly the Naval Historical Center) has no official photographic reproduction system, and makes no loans of photographic material.
However, There are several ways to obtain photographic reproductions of images in the Command's Photographic Section collections:
Option # 1: Use the Naval
Historical Foundation Photo Service.
The Naval Historical Foundation, a non-profit organization, has made arrangements to reproduce unrestricted photographs from the Naval History and Heritage Command's collections. This non-exclusive service is offered as a convenience to those wishing to obtain photographic reproductions. Rates are comparable to those charged for similar services by other institutions.
Option # 2: Visit the Photographic
Section Office (in Building 108 of the Washington Navy
Yard--just upstairs from the Navy Department Library) and copy
or digitally scan file photographs that are in the Public Domain
or are otherwise unrestricted.
Option # 3: Obtain the Services of another Photographer to do the copy work for you. A list is provided of local Commercial Photographers who may be able to undertake this task.
For Additional Information, Call (202) 433-2765, weekdays from 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM U.S. Eastern Standard Time.
