Eulenburg deleted fileEdit

Re: We have the same problem (unknown authorship) also for these pictures from the same scandal and the same years:

I leave you the decision about what to do with them. --User:G.dallorto (talk) 12:38, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice. While this is by no means "official" policy, i wouldn't press the first one for example: with a creation date of 1882 it would be unlikely enough (for my preferences), that the author died 70+ years ago (adding 50 years should make this safe enough for all images created before 1893). Also for some pictures it may be possible to claim "PD-anonymous" for Germany. Two facts must be shown: the file has to be published 70+ years ago and there must be some evidence/proof, that the author's name wasn't disclosed in the publication (or they used a pseudonym for an unknown real author). Hope that info helps a bit, but i am not going to nominate those images myself. GermanJoe (talk) 13:21, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
Please remind to always answer on the discussion page of the writer, not on yours, otherwise the writer could now know you answered.
I know the rules very well, and they apply both on the image you nominated and on those I called your attention upon. Since you don't want to nominate them (why?) I made myself a page with several cases similar to the one you nominated, please cast your vote for their deletion. Thank you. --User:G.dallorto (talk) 10:34, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I notice now that it was not you who nominated the image, it was User:mattbuck. My mistake: my apologies. --User:G.dallorto (talk) 17:06, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit
