Blog » Mystery Monday (8/15)

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)
  • This week’s winner will receive a free 8×12 print of their choosing, or simple bragging rights! Whichever you prefer!

(*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!

It's time for a hint to jump-start some guessing! This photo was taken in New Hampshire!

I've found it, but since I've recently won one of these, I'll let someone else have a chance. This building is still standing and used for the same purpose as when this photo was taken (although there have been additions off the ends of both wings). It can easily be found using Google Earth, especially if you look at the automobiles and then use the "Discover Your Photos" page here to narrow it down to a county.

Good points Tony. With that logic, the only county this came come from is Strafford.

As I stated on Facebook, the sole purpose of next week's Mystery Monday photo will be to stump both of you! :)

According to postcard 1: "This building was given the city through the generosity of the Spaulding family. It is said to be the finest and most up-to-date of any east of the Mississippi."

Great work Tony! It's quite amazing how well you find the location of these photos and I'm already looking forward to next week. We're shipping out the photo you won from two weeks ago and we look forward to sending you another!

Great job Tony, I really did some searching for this one, but didn't even come close.
