Last week, Paul Dorpat issued a challenge: he had several pictures taken down near Gas Works in Wallingford from near the the turn of the century (no, not this turn of the century, last turn of the century), and wanted to see if readers could figure out exactly where they were taken. The prizes: copies of Paul’s book and jars of honey from Wallyhood’s own backyard bee hives.
We’ve had some great and well thought out suggestions (including, as we had hoped, some modern shots taken from the same location), but Paul isn’t done yet! He’s offered the following set of pictures, taken around the same time, to add further clues to puzzle.
And don’t worry: we harvested our honey this past weekend and came out with our best haul yet: 16 gallons weighing in at 192 pounds, so we’re thinking there may be more than one winner. Contest closes this Sunday evening.
