Call for Photographs

I am in search of photographs to be included in a forthcoming book I am working for Arcadia Publishing, Sports Memories of Western Pennsylvania .

Sports Memories of Western Pennsylvania will celebrate the best of both professional and amateur sports—highlighting the hometown heroes and famous faces, as well as those who played for the love of the game. The book is a salute to the athletes, coaches, announcers and fans who created a rich sports history for Western Pennsylvania.

If you have any photographs you would like to share, I would love to include them in this book.

The publisher is unable to pay for images, but a full credit line will be given to the owner or copyright holder. Hard copy images (clear, high quality photocopies) are preferred. Should you wish to send digital images they must be scanned at 300 d.p.i. and saved in TIFF (.tif) format and placed on a CD-ROM.
