Any help appreciated
Could you take a look at the 1919 photo at http://www.flickr.com/photos/mennonitechurchusa-archives/9296782064/ ?
I'm unable to identify it, but it might be the citadel of Aleppo and sort of looks like one of your photos File:مسجد قلعة حلب والمدرج و الأبنية و القباب.JPG. There's a whole set of Mennonite photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/mennonitechurchusa-archives/sets/72157629122107117 from Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine from 1919-1920 that are on Flickr with free licenses, some look very interesting, some look like poorly preserved amateur photos. If you don't know about Mennonites, they are a Peace Church, related to the Amish and Quakers and they were doing post-war relief. Any help sorting these out and identifying them would be appreciated.
Wikimedia Commons has a specific scope
Thank you for your contributions. Your image or other content, Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 in Arab countries/Winners, was recently deleted, or will soon be deleted, in accordance with our process and policies, because it was not, or is not, within our scope. Please review our project scope, but in short, Commons is targeted at educational media files including photographs, diagrams, animations, music, spoken text and video clips. The expression “educational” is to be understood according to its broad meaning of “providing knowledge; instructional or informative”. Wikimedia Commons does not contain text articles like encyclopedia articles, textbooks, news, word definitions and such. Each of these other kinds of content have their own projects: Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikisource, Wikinews, Wiktionary and Wikiquote.
If the content seems to fit the scope of one of those other projects, please consider contributing it there. Otherwise, consider an alternative outlet. If you think that the deletion was in error because the contribution really was in scope, you can appeal it at Commons:Undeletion requests, giving a reason why it fits our scope to help others evaluate the matter. Thank you for your understanding.
