I imagine no one has responded to your question because no one on the forum knows the answer.
If I had to guess, I would assume that the answer is no. The new directory allows substantially larger images (375x500 as opposed to 135x180 in the old directory). So it would be a pity to use those old tiny images, although I suppose one could argue that something is better than nothing. Hopefully the ward website administrator kept the original images and can upload them to the new site.
Also, the new capability for uploading individual images had no analogue on the old ward website, so those images would have to be uploaded separately anyway.
The good news for administrators is that individual members can now upload their own photos, so hopefully members will handle this themselves without the ward administrator(s) having to be in the middle of the process (except for a simple approval of the photos uploaded by the members).
