air traffic control HQ?

Hehehe. You could have chosen a more picturesque view - you're going to be gazing at it for a while longer.

Well, at least you have 5 walls to stare at...

Looks like an American Embassy to me? What's the city? Looks like somewhere in eastern europe that was flattened during the war.

location is, Warm ish but was not flattened during the war, but after the war 12681_2_160.jpg:blush:

Enough of a clue :) more clues later if I can afford the extortionate internet cost!

Not air traffic control Howard lol

There was a nice red haze to the west though as the sun set , Sparky shhh ;)

It's Iceland's new Ash Generator.

Commissioned especially to divert world attention away from their collapsed economy.

They started testing it yesterday!

Ohh so close, OK Ill give the 10 points and the half eaten chocolate noddy to Mr Backmarker. It is actually taken in West Berlin and what is left of the Wall. I keep thinking of a Pink Floyd song for some reason :)

Now what to do....mmmm I spy anyone?? :blush:

mmmm..... 'fraid both of you are on the wrong continent.

Chris, If it was a new 'Exotics' facility there would be toolboxes and crap all over the place (definitely no pun intended).

Does Tarquin frequent this place then? :blush:

Was this taken in eastern Europe?

Last I heard was that Prague, Tallin and Watford were all in the same continent.... which is not where this place is.

Tarquin has been to the place, don't know about Sparky... well, I do actually, that's why he's barred.... he took exactly the same picture on his camera.

Think of this as an advertised 'attraction' then you might be in the right area. Then think about who might be crass enough to do this!

Helpful hint:- don't bother googling +"berlin wall" +"toilet" or +"berlin wall" +"attraction" as you won't find it, at least on the first 5 pages of both searches anyway.

It's a bakeshop or sweets shop. Location?

No..... Interesting thought though. It is quite close to an eatery...

It hasn't been altered, except to blank out the sign at the top, which would have been a bit of a giveaway.

Oh, and another clue:- It's in a station... but not one you would be able to catch a train from....

That 'station' clue is quite vicious, Mr. Ireland. Naughty boy.

'fraid not...... Tarquin doesn't really like this place.

It is MUCH closer to you than it is to me.... by nearly 4000 miles, or possibly 3500 on great circle routes.

much closer to you... about 1090 miles if you are strapped to a crow... or 1290 if you are driving. But at least you are in the correct continent now.

So... time to reveal all, so to speak...

It's at the Main Street Station Casino in Las Vegas, at the end of Freemont Street.

The picture in this thread was taken by me, and sparky and countless other people. Let's face it, there is only one place to stand to take the picture.

Sceptics may want to find out more at Clicky thingy

Who's got the next picture puzzle?

That's the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Berlin...Bomber Command did the redecorations in 1943. First saw it when I flew myself out to Berlin in a Vickers Varsity in 1973 whilst doing RAF pilot training. The old Varsity was of similar size to a Wellington bomber, and flying over Germany in it really made me think.....
