1925 Michigan Detroit School for Deaf Wire Photo
You are bidding on an original 6.5 x 9 Wire Photo of Michigan Detroit School for Deaf. Photo dated Mar 14,1925.
We have acquired one of the largest collections of Original AP, UPI and various other news service photos from several news media outlets. Most of our photographs are in great condition considering they are 20 - 90 years old. For the most part, they show only moderate handling faults, some editor's marks and artist "touch-ups." Please see scans below which are the actual photos you will receive as this is the best indication of condition. The majority of the photographs are fully identified and back-stamped with dates. All will be listed with low opening bids and no reserves. Subjects are practically unlimited so if you are interested in something particular please let me know and I will try to get an appropriate listing going for you. Please see the frequently asked questions below for answers to regularly received questions. I will be listing new photos almost on a daily basis, if I don't have anything you like now it may be here later.
International Buyers Please Note:
Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.
Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying.
Due to increasing postage charges we have adjusted our shipping costs. Our charges are as follows:
USPS First Class Domestic shipping is $2.99 (including Canada), USPS Priority will be $7.00. USPS First Class International shipping is $7.00. Expedited shipping via Priority Mail International is available for $24.00 worldwide. I encourage upgrading to Priority Mail for international orders as First Class may take several weeks for delivery.
***Frequently Asked Questions***
Q: Do you combine shipping and invoices?
A: Yes, if you win multiple auctions on one day you will receive a combined invoice with your shipping discount. If you win auctions on different days, you will receive a consolidated invoice each day you win with all previous purchases. We extend this courtesy out for 10 days and ask that you wrap things up and make payment on outstanding items after those 10 days.
Q: How quickly do you ship the items once paid?
A: We typically ship the same business day payments clear, and almost always by the next business day. If you do not receive an "order shipped" email from us by the close of the next business day from submitting payment, please e-mail us. We use eBay's software to manage our auctions and about one-tenth of one percent of transactions do not sync up with Paypal (much to our dismay).
Q: What are your office hours?
A: eBay for us is a business, and a very fun one to be in! We are open M-F 9 to 5 (CST). Therefore, we do not return e-mails and phone calls over the weekend.
Q: Where did these originate?
A: These photographs are from various newspaper archives.
Q: Do you re-list items (in case I miss an auction ending)?
A: As a general rule, items that receive no bids are moved to our store as a fixed-price listing and at a higher price than the starting auction price.
Q: Do you leave feedback?
A: Yes--we always leave feedback for buyers. Our software monitors when our buyers leave us feedback, then notifies us that we can leave feedback for the buyer. Rest assured, if you leave feedback, we will do the same!
Q: Can the photos be cleaned?
A: Yes. Grease pencil markings can be wiped off with a dry paper towel (most of which we have already removed). Permanent marker and "painted areas" can be removed with a baby wipe, Clorox wipe, or denatured alcohol, but BEWARE dampness and photos do not mix! Wipe firmly but briefly then dry immediately. Repeat as necessary.
Q: Do we make mistakes?
A: Yes, we absolutely do make mistakes but please be assured if a mistake is made, every effort will be made to make sure it is corrected.
