OriginalAldine Square, Chicago, in 1935. Aldine Square was a neighborhood that would be demolished to make way for the Ida B. Wells Homes in 1938; this picture was taken by federal employees documenting the pre-project area.
Alt - JPEG version.
Compelling and high-quality photograph. Has significant EV in its article. (Perhaps the tree might be considered an "obstructing" element per criterion 1; I don't think it is, but if consensus says otherwise it can likely be cropped.)

  • Comment – We generally don't nominate PNGs, because for some reason JPGs render sharper on Wikipedia pages. Converting the format would be an improvement. Also the white code on lower left should be cloned out, top edge has a black strip which can be cloned out. Currently I am neutral on voting, I not sure the composition shows enough. But I might support if I dig into the subject a little. Bammesk (talk) 03:38, 20 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    • The JPEG thing is counterintuitive given my work with diagrams (but having uploaded the Alt I see it's true). I decided to simply crop out the black strip, and will deal with the white code later. I have included an alt for the JPEG to the right. – John M Wolfson (talkcontribs) 04:02, 20 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
