What does "NOT FOR SALE" mean?

When searching for images you might see the phrase "NOT FOR SALE" under the Image column. This indicates that the original negative for that entry was lost or destroyed, meaning that we are unable to provide an image for sale.

We leave these entries on the website as an aid for genealogy researchers, since it indicates that the purchaser of the photograph was in David City, Nebraska on a certain date. Occasionally we get donations of old photographs that we can match to the missing negatives, and if that happens, we update the website with the new image.
