  • First time? Well, welcome to FPC. Thanks for the nomination. For next time, add your nomination at the top of the list. See you around, -Fcb981(talk:contribs) 21:38, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment Could you obtain a better quality scan? DurovaCharge! 00:08, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
    • Probably not, that's the largest size available on the WCE site. I even doubt this image will be supported, but well, it's my first nomination, so I'll just observe the process. And thanks for the tip, Fcb981. Funkynusayri (talk) 00:26, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
      • If you like historic photographs you might want to drop by my workshop at User:Durova/Landmark images. It's an effort to identify potentially feature-worthy material and get it ready for FPC. Best wishes, DurovaCharge! 08:35, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose While highly encyclopedic, the very bad quality of the scan leans me against it. If a better scan could be obtained, I would change my vote. Clegs (talk) 07:03, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose per the low-qual scan. -- Mike (Kicking222) 20:05, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
