Contested deletion[edit]

This page is not unambiguously promotional, because the restaurant was a Chicago Institution for many decades. I don't understand why the Berghoff Restaurant in Chicago is allowed an articled while Fanny's is characterized as promotional and frivolous. If the restaurant was recognized by Chicago Magazine, a respected and legitimate publication, as one of the top 40 Chicago restaurants ever (as is the Berghoff), it certainly deserves a place in Wikipedia. If Wikipedia content editors see any content within the article they feel to be promotional, they may feel free to remove it. I am not associated with Fanny's in any capacity. --Emellis (talk) 19:02, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Message About Added Image[edit]

I just came to Wikipedia to read about something unrelated and noticed a message about the old ad I posted on the Fanny's article this morning. It says something about copyright permissions.

Here's my take: the ad is from the 50's, the restaurant has been gone since the 80's, the founder has passed away and a theme restaurant in Michigan with the same name also now seems to have closed some years ago. No descendents of Fanny, the restaurant founder, seem to be engaged in significant business activity.

The restaurant was beloved by many people from Chicago and there isn't much on the Internet about it. I think the image would be enjoyed by many. But if someone out there in Wikipedia-land thinks it is a problem just take it down. I don't care enough to read all this language about figuring out if the picture can "legally" be posted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Emellis (talkcontribs) 20:40, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
