Hello all,

I have a question about the images from the Bundesarchiv. Some chinese 
Wikipedians are examining the images took in China. There are some 
obvious errors, other images can be more detailed identified.

For example 
is described as a Temple in Tsingtau, but it is indeed [[:en:Temple of 
Heaven]] in Beijing.

Another example is this photo 
described as [[:en:Qianmen]] in Beijing, but it is surely not this gate 
but some other gate of Beijing because the raws of window does not fit 
to the description and historical images.

Examples of images where we can identify more precisely is for example 
the depicted pagoda can be identify as this one 

Now my questions: Where should we put these informations? Just in the 
image page or in the talk page of the images?

Thanks very much
