Original description: "THOSE WHO FELL BY THE WAYSIDE. Scenes like this were common all over the Armenian provinces, in the spring and summer months of 1915.

This image needs restoration. If the old version is still useful, for example if restoring the image will alter the image significantly, upload the new version under a different title so that both can be used (e.g. [[File:Mount_Everest.jpg]] → [[File:Mount_Everest - restored.jpg]]. After uploading the restored version, replace this template with: {{superseded|File:Mount Everest - restored.jpg|image restored}}, replacing the italicised name with the file name in question.
