I looked into using some images from the St. Lawrence County Historical Society for a book and they wanted $200 per image.

That's a new high price for me, Alan. I was upset when the San Francisco Chronicle wanted $125 each for photos from their morgue, long-ago news photos. We used the absolute MINIMUM we needed, I can tell you.
