  • Comment Is this edited? There's some strange linework in the background over his left shoulder (that is, the shoulder on the right side of the image), and it's be good to know whether that's original or not. It's not really the best engraving, but a check around indicates it's likely to be the best we'll get for him, so I'm happy to support once that issue's resolved.

  • Hi Adam- I've uploaded the original tif file and linked it to this image. You can see that the broken lines over the shoulder are indeed part of the original image. Thanks--Godot13 (talk) 19:09, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose One of those generic political portraits... Brandmeistertalk 20:58, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
  • @Brandmeister- Understood. If you can find a better image for the article I will support it as an ALT. Thanks--Godot13 (talk) 22:18, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - Although Lisle is from a period where one could reasonably expect photographs of politicians, I think this engraving still has enough EV to stand on its own here. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 12:26, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
