Blog » Mystery Monday (2/6)

Welcome back to another Mystery Monday contest! Every Monday, we’re going to post a photo from our collection and invite anyone to guess its location. The first person to correctly identify the location will win a prize. To start the year, we’ll be offering the winner a $50 discount to any framed photograph in our collection.

By the way, last week’s Mystery Monday contest was revealed! Great job, Gretchen! Check the comments for the location by clicking here.

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.
  • Whoever identifies the photograph and posts a link to its correct location first, wins!
  • This week’s winner will receive a $50 coupon for any framed print, or simple bragging rights! Whichever you prefer!
  • In order to win, the photo’s location must be correctly identified by this Friday at 5:30PM EST.

If you know of anyone else who would enjoy this blog (or perhaps someone who would be a great competitor,) please send them here!

Let the games begin!

The photo was taken somewhere in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, or Houston, TX

Hi Randy! You're correct! This photo was taken in one of the five states you listed.

Randy, I think we can rule out Houston TX, as (according to their website) that Transport, Inc, terminal was not established until 1989. The vehicles imply 60s or early 70s at the latest.

Well, I got that far, too, based on the Transport, Inc depot. Unfortunately they don't list addresses for the 4 remaining states. I thought the big Mobil driveway would be a good clue, but I can't seem to find anything on that either. Can anyone read what Harold's sells (that we should "Remember") or the name on the side of the building behind Transport Inc? I can only tell that it's two words and the first one starts with G.

Well everyone, it's time to reveal the location of this week's Mystery Monday contest. This link will show you a Google Map and an address is the lower right. Enjoy! http://vintageaerial.com/photos/south...

So the only thing still there is Harold's! I see that it is a photo center. I never would have recognized the corner from the original photo. Good job stumping us this week!
