For all the wonderful images you are finding in the Mechanical Curator collection and uploading. Jheald (talk) 13:31, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

I wanted to give you this barnstar to thank you for all the fantastic images you have been finding in the Mechanical Curator collection and uploading here.

I have noticed in a couple of other sets that the images uploaded to Flickr can be different to images in the PDF. For example, the Flickr images are sometimes higher resolution or higher quality. I think the PDFs were made several years ago; but the Flickr images were made only a few months ago, starting again from the original full-resolution scans of each page. So that might explain why the two don't quite match up. I'm in touch by email with the chap at the British Library who extracted the Flickr pics, so I will ask him about this the next time that I'm writing to him. All best, Jheald (talk) 11:29, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
Loving the "Golden Transvaal" set. Very nice!
A couple of little suggestions that could make it even better -- first, is there any chance that you could fill in either the description or the title field of the {{artwork}} template, perhaps when you are going through and adding categories. (Also the artist/photographer would be great, if they are identified). Even if the description just repeats the filename, it is nice to have it there -- for one thing, it can encourage people to make wikilinks, that help even better identify the picture. For example "Castle Line" in a description in File:CASTLE LINE RoyalMailService (1893).jpg and "Union Line" in a description of File:UNION LINE AfricanRoyalMailservice (1893).jpg might each be linked to the article en:Union-Castle Line / de:Union-Castle Line, which go a little into the history of that shipping line. (Well, the English version of the article does; the German version only really starts at 1900). Or the description of the President Kruger image could link to en:Paul Kruger / de:Paul Kruger.
The other little thing is the British Library shelfmarks. I think you must have an allergy to them!
But seriously: really good. It's fantastic, the work that you're doing here. Jheald (talk) 18:42, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
✓OK - very interesting pictures and a treasure for the Johannesburg early history... but it takes time..--Metilsteiner (talk) 23:02, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
"This map depicts the city of Johannesburg as it existed over a hundred years ago. With the first discoveries of gold reefs in 1884, Johannesburg began as a small mining settlement and grew rapidly. In 1886 it counted around 3000, primarily European, inhabitants but a mere ten years later, the town comprised over 100,000 people. The map categorizes the population into five racial categories, obviously problematic but nonetheless indicative of a colourful and cosmopolitan urban centre with a diversity of culture and language. Tragically, we also see that, more than 50 years before Apartheid, the city was already being crafted into racial areas. A ‘Native Location’ hovers over what is now Vrededorp and Brixton, and ‘Kafir’ and ‘Coolie’ locations are indicated alongside the railway in what is now Burghersdorp.
"Made by one of the oldest publishing houses in the country, Grocott and Sherry Publishers still exists as Grocott’s Publishing and Printing (based in Grahamstown). The map is signed by Burnie Dobie Melvill, brother of the landsurveyor Edward Harker Vincent Melvill, who gave his name to the suburb of Melville. Only just proclaimed, Melville is outlined by a dotted line at the very edge of the city.
"Other fascinating features of this map include a large red dot indicating the location of the city’s only telephone between Devilliers and Plein Streets. The intersection of Bertha and Jorissen, where Wits Art Museum is located, already exists, while the rest of Wits University’s east campus is an ‘Agricultural Show Ground’, and west campus is a blank space."
Burnie Dobie Melvill, whose father Samuel had been government Surveyor-General, was born in 1866. [1]. I can't see a date of death for him on the net; but the image is certainly okay under United States law, as it was published before 1923. The copyright term in South Africa is "life + 50 years". On New Year's Day 1964, B.D. Melvill would have to have been 97 -- not impossible, but unlikely (especially then), so the map is very strongly likely to be copyright-expired now under South African law as well.

10,732 images now in Category:Images from the British Library Mechanical Curator collection !! And you've been finding some great images to upload. I'm sorry that so many of my uploads still need some work done to them, but yours are great. I was wondering, is there any particular program or settings that you have been doing to enhance the images (eg colour and black / white levels)? Your uploads look so good, and you manage to upload so much -- you must have a really good system for doing it. Hope this finds you well, best wishes, Jheald (talk) 15:57, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for uploading and ading pictures in the Latvian Wikipedia. We really appreciate it! --AgrisR (talk) 16:26, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Meine letzten Uploads[edit]

Hallo Metilsteiner, wenn du vielleicht Lust und Zeit hast, könntest du über meine Eisenach-Uploads drüberschauen, ob sie richtig einkategorisiert und benannt sind. Bei einigen, wie z. B. den Reliefs in Backstein oder der verfallenen Fabrik ist mir nicht klar, um welche Hausnummer bzw. um welches Gebäude es sich genau handelt. Wie gesagt, nur wenn du Lust hast. Danke und schöne Pfingsten noch... --Arnd (talk) 16:50, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Hallo Arnd, vielen Dank für die vielen hübschen Bilder von Eisenach, doch das muss im Moment etwas warten, da ich mich intensiv um einige berufliche Belange kümmern muss, aber wie das Sprichwort schon sagt Aufgeschoben....

Viele Grüße --Metilsteiner (talk) 11:08, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Nachdem ich heute zum ich-weiß-nicht-wievielten Male über eines deiner schönen Fotos aus der Eisenacher Gegend gestolpert bin, dachte ich mir: Höchste Zeit für eine kleine Anerkennung!

"Das Denkmal zeigt Käte Duncker als Lehrerin in Friedrichroda, es befand sich bis 2009 im Kurpark der Stadt und wurde mit der Neugestaltung der Kurpromenade entfernt. Nach Auskunft des Bauamtes soll das Denkmal etwa im Jahre 2018 wieder im Kurpark aufgestellt werden."[edit]

... laut Liste der Kulturdenkmale in Friedrichroda

Hast du, vielleicht, irgendeine Quelle ("wiki-Quelle") fuer das info das dieses Denkmal soll etwa 2018 zurueck zum Kurpark eintreten gesehen?

Am besten, mit "url", aber ohne "url" koennte auch mir hier hilfreich werden.

Mit Dank im Voraus und Gruessen Charles01 (talk) 15:09, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

(Ich habe diese Frage schon an de:Benutzer:CTHOE gestellt. Natuerlich ich suche nur ein einziges Antwort.)

Hallo - leider ist der Beleg bereits gelöscht - als ich die Datei hochgeladen hatte, war zufällig noch ein Bericht in der Thüringer Landeszeitung - Lokalredaktion Gotha online, doch die haben den Text inzwischen wieder gelöscht. Inzwischen habe ich mal einen DDR-Führer zu politischen Denkmälern im Bez. Erfurt gekauft, dort ist das Denkmal auch aufgeführt. ... Ich empfehle den kurzen Dienstweg - ruf doch einfach mal in der Stadtverwaltung Friedrichroda, (03623) 330-100 an und verlange das Bauamt oder Abt. Garten und Fiedhofsamt ..., die kennen den aktuellen Stand. --Metilsteiner (talk) 07:10, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

Falsche Jahreszahl[edit]

Hallo Metilsteiner, ich hätte mal wieder eine Anmerkung, dieses Mal zwecks einer Datierung. Dieses Foto (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Eisenach_Jakobsplan_1978.jpg) ist auf 1978 datiert. Das stimmt aber nicht, da selbst die Bäckerei erst 1988 aus dem Gebäude raus ist, wie die Familie selbst erzählt hat. Das Foto kann daher nur 1988 entstanden sein, wurde auch desöfteren in einem Forum darüber diskutiert. Kannst du das bitte ändern, damit die ständigen Falschmeldungen enden. Ebenso muss es dann auf der Eisenach Seite geändert werden. -- Frarenatin (talk) 21:48, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Hallo Farentin - Danke für den Hinweis. Im Gegensatz zu (Foto-)Positiven, wo ab und zu mal ein Datumsstempel vorhanden ist, kann man einem Negativ nicht ansehen, wann es konkret belichtet wurde. Mein Cousin ist 1978 in einer Wohnung in unmittelbarer Nähe der damaligen WG Gaststätte Zisterne (Jakobsgasse) eingezogen, ich erinnere mich noch sehr gut, das damals auch bereits die Nordseite vom Jakobsplan mit Plattenbau-Gebäuden bebaut war und bereits zahlreiche Häuser auf der Südseite (Sophienstraße) bereits leergezogen waren. Es wurde aber dann erst im WG Nord weiter gebaut, wie Dr. Brunner in seiner Geschichte der Stadt Eisenach (Wartberg-Verlag 2004, S. 114) berichtet. Der Grund war simpel - das AWE und andere Eisenacher Großbetriebe sollten zusätzliche Arbeitskräfte erhalten, die Innenstadtsanierung musste pausieren. Es ging dann auch erst mal in der Fläche zwischen Elisabeth-Kirche und Stadtschloss und zeitgleich auch östlich beim Markscheffelshof und mittlere Alexanderstraße weiter. Dann kam die Wende und die nördliche Altstadt hatte große provisor. Parkplätze ... Kurz und gut, ich werde die Datierung berichtigen ....--Metilsteiner (talk) 06:35, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Stolpersteine in Vacha[edit]

Hallo Metilsteiner, solltest du mal in Vacha sein, im Steinweg 2 sind 5 noch nicht fotografierte Stolpersteine. Viele Grüße, --Arnd (talk) 11:35, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Hallo Arnd, habe Deinen Bilderwunsch registriert, ich hab noch BORSCH und zwei kleinere Orte bei Geisa auf meiner Arbeitsliste, in Vacha ist der Umstieg auf den Bus nach Geisa möglich, das passt also schon mal irgendwann. Am SO warst Du in Eisenach Hötzelsroda - Dürrerhof, da stand ich zeitgleich in Schmalkalden - eine ganz herrliche Stadt, ich hab bei mittelprächtigem Wetter vielleicht 33 % der Altstadt geschafft, und dann gibts auch noch die 'zig Vorörtchen. Also ein paar Foto-Touren werde ich dieses Jahr noch machen, aber es wird halt immer aufwändiger, dort hinzukommen ... ich habe vor ein paar Jahren das Autofahren aufgegeben, der TÜV usw. man kommt auch ohne über die Runden.--Metilsteiner (talk) 10:37, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.
