Blog » Mystery Monday (2/27/12)

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 giving the winner a $50 gift certificate towards a framed photograph.

Here are the guidelines for the contest:

  • 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!

So do we get a hint? Is this in the south end or is it just anywhere in Toledo?

Is there something I'm not seeing, Beverly? Why do you think this is in the Toledo area? (I'm not saying it isn't, I don't have a clue.)

Happy to know, we've stumped you this week; as last week's was guessed within seconds. A clue? Um, not in Ohio and the year is 1968.

This is somewhere in Thurston County, Washington; but I've been unsuccessful pinpointing it. There are some unusual landmarks (a "trailer park" and an apparent railroad/train museum or graveyard), but Google has not been much help yet. This photo is #5 on this roll: http://vintageaerial.com/photos/washi...

Meant to say: There are some unusual landmarks on the roll containing this photo.

Alright, Tony, I'm contacting you directly on how you do it. You're amazing.
