Guesss the location !!

Ok then,at Daves suggestion lets give it a whirl and see if it 'catches on'.Simple really,someone posts a photo and we have to guess the location.Questions can be asked but up to the poster how much help, if any,is given!.I'll kick off



Hope the link works as I am not very good at this kind of thing

Re: Guesss the location !!

Answers to above questions: It is north, not south (so no, it's not Truro!. It looks out to water and is close to the sea. He is holding aloft the victor's laurel wreath.

Another big clue (I know these things can become boring very quickly!) this city will be honoured for its cultural legacy in 2 years from now.

Cheers,
Rob

Re: Guesss the location !!

Assuming you mean the asterisks to represent iverpoo, yes :o)

It is indeed Liverpool. Right down on the waterfront along from the Liver-building. I originally thought about posting this one but I felt it would have been too obvious:



Cheers, all.

Re: Guesss the location !!

Just as a side issue, if I had placed this one in=stead (Still Liverpool) how many would have guessed at a castle of some kind? I think this angle makes it look a lot like Windsor or somewhere similar.

Cheers,
Rob
