GA review – see WP:WIAGA for criteria

  6. Does it contain images to illustrate the topic?
    A. Images are copyright tagged, and non-free images have fair use rationales:
    B. Images are provided where possible and appropriate, with suitable captions:
  7. Overall:
    Pass or Fail:


It is unfortunate that there are no images for this article. I have found a few images on internet search engines that may be appropriate if permission can be granted for their fair use. Please read copy right permission and fair use rationales, and see if an appropriate image for this article can be obtained. While I do not believe it is a requirement for all GAs to have images, and it would be better for an article to have no image rather than have an inappropriate one, I would like to see if an appropriate image could be found. I will place the review of this article on hold for a week or so until there is a response from the article nominator or someone else who is concerned with this article. --Tea with toast (talk) 20:05, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi there, thanks for the review! In my absence, someone has posted a relevant free image but, if it would help, there are several images out there that could be suitable under Template:Non-free book cover. Would it help the article further to add a book cover? Canadian Paul 05:21, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I think it would improve the article to have a lead image. Thanks. --Tea with toast (talk) 00:34, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
Done - to the best of my knowledge, this is the only printing with the title of the story on the cover... unless it was on the cover of the November 1920 Tryout printing, the cover of which I could not find on the internet. Canadian Paul 01:41, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
Great job! --Tea with toast (talk) 02:25, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
