I understand. I am familiar with the original rules. Unfortunately even the CT Admins know that there would likely be no photos whatsoever for many of the theaters listed, if they relied solely on those taken by the individual members posting them. Because literally thousands of the theaters have been gone for over 50 years. Unless someone is a CT member, who just happens to find their dad’s shoebox full of old theater pics and posts them here, they would never see the light of day. As long as we make every effort to credit the original photo source whenever possible, all is good. That’s why there are 9 different types of licensing to choose from, whenever posting a photo. I even make sure to use the Copyright license, when I know that the image is such or from a given collection. If someone on Facebook has a story that relates to the photo used, I post that too giving them credit for the copy.

I’m sure you’ve noticed on many of the pages, that they sit dormant for upwards of 5 years before newly found photos are ever posted. That’s why I alert the list in the comments about the photos I post, as well as having posted them. It sometimes revives interest in the given theater, and sparks memories from those who have commented in the past. When they see a new angle or old promotion the photos may portray. (Or the new stories that accompany them as I mentioned above.) Hopefully CT and all the photos will remain long after we have left this earth. I feel that’s kind of the point of CT. That’s also a reason to actively re-post photos in the Photos Section, that were previously in now dead links in the Comments. Because early internet links seem to be drying up. As people stop paying for the hosting. Even the Library of Congress site is not connecting properly.

Where is it then? It’s not in the Photos Section or linked to in any of the Comments. Because I always check first. If you posted it before it appears to be gone now. I can only credit the sources I get them from. If they don’t credit the original sources, there is no way to know where any of them come from. And I often do a reverse image search on many. I always give proper credit whenever I can. I’ve posted over 2,300 photos to CT in over 10 years. Be glad that it got posted for others to see. Because it does not appear to have been posted previously.
