AT&T building Nashville.
Not to be confused with AT&T in New York (on Madison Avenue)

Bugger. Beaten by time.

WoE was my favourite thread. It's lain dormant for a few years; time to kick it back to life perhaps?

Good one Animal Mother!

Just for guidance, when this thread was a hot one, the usual form was for the poster to confirm when someone got the answer right, and for the person who did get it right to either post a photo of their own, or declare Open House. That kept the thread moving and near the top of the page.

Wasn't the AT&T building also known as the Batman Building?

Cool. Didn't know that, I'm happy to keep it running.

What about this one. Aerial shot to help the pilots.

Won't take you up on that pic Animal Mother because our thing is narrowboating and we were there a few years ago so it's too close to home. Is the Roman influence obvious?

Nicely done!

Pontcysyllte (pont-kuh-suth-teh) aqueduct. A world heritage site on my doorstep.

Your turn.

That's why i seldom played, working a minimum of 12 hours per day, 6 days per week, not here enough to be active in the game, but yes, animal mother is correct, and yes, the att building in Nashville is known as the bat building.

Ok, allow me to barge in and keep WoE on Page 1. Try this for the aroma. That chimney used to be well downwind of the town. Today it's a popular weekend attraction for a pint or local farmers' produce.

Sorry Chevvron, right country, wrong town. The place is now a museum.

I remember the 'aroma' from the old 'Chesham and Brackley Brewery' in my home town of Chesham, Bucks.
Closed in about 1959, it was right next to my school! We had a couple of blacksmiths nearby with their 'unique' aroma too.

Just happened to stumble across this today. To see Broadreach and svhar posting again makes my heart sing. It would be fantastic to rekindle the thread.

Duckbutt Uber Alles! Museum of Technology it is, formerly the Sewage Works. There's now a pop-up food fair and pub on the grounds and, last Sunday, packed. Apologies for the delay replying, we've been getting a sunburn on the cutt.

Your shovel, Duckbutt!
