OriginalSMS Gazelle
Reason
Part of a series of lithographs of ships from the Imperial German Navy, admittedly my least-favourite, but given it's the lead image for two good articles and a featured artice, it has EV, at least
Articles in which this image appears
SMS Gazelle, Gazelle-class cruiser, List of light cruisers of Germany, etc.

  • Support - Even though I agree the image is not 110%, it undeniably has good EV and is a good representation of the subject. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 13:43, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment — In previous examples from this series, weren't the (tacky-looking) borders removed? Sca (talk) 14:44, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
  • I kind of like the borders, but can remove them if preferred. It's a somewhat slow process. Adam Cuerden (talk) 14:57, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Support for its EV (even though I don't like the garish red hull paint), since there apparently are no others of the 10-ship Gazelle class in this series by Hugo Graf. Would prefer no border. Sca (talk) 17:59, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
  • And I've learned a new word — debordering! Smile eye.png Sca (talk) 00:54, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
  • debordering (archaic) - referring to lists made by young bloods at the start of the London coming out season. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 11:19, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Useless Info Dept.: Seems there's a similarly spelled French word with a different meaning. Sca (talk) 14:09, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
