This is not invalid.. A lot of these photos ad their heyday in print.. Watermarks sadly are a necessary fact of life these days.. back then hardly anyone at all had the internet and Facebook was not the image stealing-exif data erasing beast it is now.. Today the entire planet is online and people will hijack your image for personal use from Dublin to Tim-buck-Too without a second thought. Look at all the big international image agencies like Getty, Rex Corbis etc and all the stock agencies and all online press.. they watermark absolutely EVERYTHING!
