Blog » Mystery Monday (6/20)

Another week, another mystery! Here is the entry for this week. Read the guidelines below, then comment and be sure to include a link to a corresponding map. Then, this Friday we will reveal this photos location in the comment section of this post!

Here are the guidelines,

  • If you can correctly identify the photo with a link to Google Maps showing where it is, or should be*, you win! Leave a comment here on the blog or on our Facebook Page.
  • Every Friday we will reveal the photo and congratulate the winner! (The first to post the correct answer & link)

(*It is estimated that 40% of photos document places that are no longer standing. So, if you can tell us where the subject of the photo used to be, that will work too.)

Enjoy!

Love this pic, hope someone gets it.....will work on it if any energy left tonight. Fire Evac coming left and right and I am taking large animals...but now fire 14 miles from me and moving this way....I am packed.....so, I can work tonight on this, maybe on my way out the door...LOL

Looks like old Mill Cafe or Grill something like that....just a great pic all around....hope someone gets it.....can't read the sign at all....or one across the street. Wonder if we are back in California again.

Good luck!

This is on Lincoln Highway between Delphos, and Van Wert Ohio. I think it used to be a bar "windmill" something. It is still there but I think it is a home now.

I finally got a chance to look it up on google maps. Here it is. I grew up a few miles from here. Now live in Delphos and still drive by regularly. There is a drive in theater just about a mile east of here. It is called the Van-Del since it is half way between Van Wert and Delphos and still is in operation.
