This article has bitter undertones. Drowned does not seem the correct word to describe a village being submerged.

Surely a reason of why they were 'drowned' under a reservoir would make for a better article. Derwent was a village located in the upper Derwent valley. The majority of the buildings were demolished during construction of the Ladybower reservoir prior to the valley being flooded. etc Also villages were relocated to a new hamlet of Yorkshire bridge linked to the article Yorkshire_bridge. The Yorkshire bridge article should also say why the hamlet is there as it is a new hamlet consisting of three rows of houses, two terraced, one of semi detached.

Also Village should be added after the name as that is what it is no known as. Derwent village, to differentiate between the, Derwent reservoir and the area around the reservoir which is known as and labelled on google maps as 'Derwent'. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:26, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

1925 Postcard[edit]

I am the owner of the Brownie Bear site from which the 1925 image of the postcard was taken. My dating reflects my impression of when the image was taken. It does not reflect the year in which the photographer died. It therefore follows that the image might still be within copyright as understood by English and Welsh Law. The photographer may not have died until several years after the photograph was taken. This would mean that the image was within copyright. The use of "All Rights Reserved" is my way of highlighting that the image cannot be considered to be in the public domain just yet. I wish to confirm that the image was published in England and Wales and remains in that jurisdiction. It therefore follows that Wikipedia's US based assertions of legal fact do not apply.

I would also point out that you have used an electronic copy of an original photograph. Whilst the original MIGHT be out of copyright - the electronic copy that I have created and you are using is within copyright. It was necessary for me to amend the light levels and other settings to make the scan easier to view. Accordingly I have made changes that enjoy protection of copyright protection. The underlying image on the postcard MIGHT be in the public domain. However, the image as it is presented incorporates my tweakings that are most definitely within copyright - ie mine.

In view of the fact that you omitted to contact me to discuss use of the image prior to using it - I must ask you to remove it. (talk) 23:48, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
