  1. Hi Debbie,

    The US General Services Administration’s Office of Real Property Utilization and Disposal requests your permission to reproduce and publish the image of the following lighthouse:

    Lighthouse Name: Whaleback Ledge Lighthouse
    URL: http://www.lighthousestars.com (under the caption: Whaleback Ledge Lighthouse Thanksgiving).

    The image will be used in publications to promote the federal National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act program. You will be given photography credits in the publications; however there will be no monetary compensation.

    In addition to requesting your permission, we would also like to request a high-resolution digital copy of the image for reproduction.

    If GSA is required to seek permission from another entity, we would appreciate any information you could provide to us about the entity, so that we may contact them.

    Please reply back to my email address with Subject: GSA Lighthouse Image. If you permit us to use the image (and have authority to do so), please attach a high-resolution digital copy for reproduction. Also, please indicate how the photography credits should read.

    If you have any questions, feel free to send an email to Sumiko Hossain at Sumiko.Hossain@gsa.gov
