Untitled[edit]

I'm trying to figure out how Barnard was photographed in 1947 when he died in 1938. Any ideas?

Good point. 1938 is consistently given on the Web as his death, even at sites not depending on Wikipedia. --Wetman 04:45, 1 Dec 2004 (UTC)
yes, I looked it up in several books [I'm an old fashioned kind of guy] and 1938 it is. So . . . . maybe the print was made in 1947? Carptrash 06

A photograph is consistently dated on Wikipedia at the time the image was captured, not at the time the image was reproduced. The date of 1947 for the photograph cannot be correct; I would guess that the image was captured in 1937, but have no empirical basis for this guess. We need to keep working on this.

Lincoln statue[edit]

This source indicates that the original Abraham Lincoln statue is in Cincinnati and a copy was sent to Manchester. The article says that Cincinnati's is a "second casting." Is there a source to support this?

Thanks.

i see that the Manchester Theory [hitherto and hereafter refered to as "MT"] was added early in the article's history, and I later went and made it worse. I've looking it up and think that it is okay now. Carptrash 23:46, 19 March 2006 (UTC)
