Himes Family Trip to Europe (1890)Edit

Charles Francis Himes (1838-1918) travelled in 1890 to Europe by ship and shot these pictures. After his death the Dickinson College (Carlisle, PA) archived his inheritance (Details) and published the images on Flickr. In the Flickr album exist 108 pictures. They show the city of Gießen and the surroundings in a very special way. Due to its age these pics are {{PD-old-90}} and {{PD-US}}. On Flickr the pictures are licensed with "(c) Alle Rechte vorbehalten." (All rights reserved), but IMO this is copyfraud. --Emha (talk) 09:55, 13 December 2012 (UTC)


I like to get a second opinion about the suggested images and licences before uploading. It is not possible to import images market as not free with the "default" flickrripper-script, so we will need a special import script here. Is there anybody with knowledge about this? --Slick (talk) 10:36, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

  Support I suggest to use {{PD-old-auto-1923|deathyear=1918}} to make is easier for the future. Following some links from one of the Flickr image to come to the Collection Register where is stated:

  • Donation: Gift of Mary Himes Vale and Sarah Vale Rush, 1947
  • Usage: These materials have been donated without restrictions on usage.

My conclusion: Fine to upload to Commons, very valueble content! Raymond 11:02, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
