Thanks[edit]

Andrew:

Thanks for all the help. The link to the National Archive was the trick about the Roosevelt House. It gave the true location of it. I have changed both the address and the GPS coordinates for this designation.

I will work on testing putting multiple images up later.

Now for the big elephant. I have images of various buildings that no longer exist. These come from various sources and were not created by my camera. I tried to do this a while ago with an image of a demolished building that I found on the internet and it was deleted almost immediately. The picture had no info about the author, so I couldn't attest that it wasn't copyrighted. It was a picture from 40 years ago.

I have these images, because I hate to lose these images of significant places.

Is there a way I can upload them and put them into the blank slots of these places without getting scolded?

Maybe when the all the leaves fall, I am going to revisit some of the places that are hidden by leaves.

Michigan fire station articles[edit]

Hi, I have long been admiring your steady progress in developing NRHP articles in Michigan, which I watch in the graphics at wp:NRHPPROGRESS. I wonder if you could possibly please shake up your order of work to create the following three, sooner rather than later:

These are the three redlinks in Michigan's section of new List of fire stations, which is mostly NRHP listings, vs. 12 bluelinks in Michigan. There are about 115 redlinks overall; I want to work ahead on creating most of the rest of these in one big push; it would be a help to see the Michigan ones get done by you. Either way, hope you are well, keep up the good work. Cheers, --Doncram (talk) 08:24, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

thank you for your reply to my talk , that’ll be grand. :) —Doncram (talk) 15:06, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Please accept this barnstar as a small token of my appreciation for your creation of numerous articles on NRHP-listed buildings in Flint and Genesee County, Michigan. I am very impressed with your work, and deeply appreciative of the contribution it is making to Wikipedia. Thanks again! Michael Barera (talk) 22:34, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the Acknowledgement[edit]

Andrew:

I had to get out and get some leaf peeping pictures, so I combined that with trying to get the few places that don't have pictures.

To find the Ernest Hemingway Cottage was a real challenge. It was my third trip. I finally found it doing some detective work. I knocked on the door and it looks like it was shuttered for the winter, so I went ahead and photographed it. The address and the GPS coordinates are all wrong. Not even close. My question for you is now I know where it is, should I correct the location? I am thinking this was done deliberately, so people can't find it and show up at the door. I am not sure how many places are National, Michigan and Landmark sites in Michigan, but this is one. It always bugged me that the only photos were the old black and white ones.

I stopped at the Chicago Club in Charlevoix. The manager denied me permission to enter and told me that there was no historic listing, even when I showed him the print out of the Wiki page. He challenged me to find the listing citation. How would I do that?

I had talked with Laura Ashley at the MI SPHO years ago and she helped me. I reached out to her, but I haven't gotten any response. Is there an archive of these listings somewhere. If I was to go to the Michigan Archives in Lansing, would they be there?

I am nuts. I drove miles down dirt roads, then two tracks where the mud holes wanted to swallow my vehicle to get to the Port Cheney Cemetery near Roscommon. It is basically a clearing in the middle of nowhere with very few graves. And then the historic home in Roscommon. Now a brand new Dollar General parking lot.

I took a lot of pictures, so you will see activity from me for some time.

DYK for The Durant[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 26 November 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article The Durant, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that The Durant (pictured) in Flint, Michigan, was opened as a hotel in 1920, vacated in 1973, acquired by the Genesee County Land Bank in 2005, and reopened as an apartment building in 2010? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/The Durant. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, The Durant), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Old Photo[edit]

Andrew:

Before I head south for the winter, I am doing a little work on the historic sites. Last week, I went to the MSHPO offices in Lansing and pulled files on about 20 sites that baffled me. A lot of them I looked at are gone. They also gave me answers to other sites' location I couldn't find. I had their permission to copy any of the things in the files. So, there are two pictures of sites that have been demolished. One of them is the Big Prarie Grange Hall you looked for in an earlier talk. Even though they are gone, I felt that it would be important to put them on the site, so people can see what they were.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Big_Prarie_Grange_Hall.jpg -this site is in Newago County https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:St._John%27s_Lutheran_Church-Lake_City.jpg - this site is in Missaukee County

I took my camera into the MSHPO offices and took photos of the applications, maps and of the few photos of these structures. I still have others that I haven't done anything with, that I will wait to see how these go. I am a bit confused as to proceed, since these photos were taken by unknown people who where looking at registering the sites. The last time I tried this, the photo was put into a fast deletion. I have an aversion to being spanked.
