Last week’s contest was too easy: The remnants of Eastwood Mall. Dan from Between the Links was the first to get it, so he is the winner. Also being noted, though, are last week’s two scoflaws – Dystopos and Mom – who both redeemed themselves by correcty e-mailing the answer this time.

The weather was beautiful and we sat up there for quite a while.

Donated by Mr & Mrs John M. Harbert. Another copy of this work is displayed in Belgrave Square, London. […]
