These rather fine arches appear grand enough, to me, to be Town Gates - but where? That young man astride the horse (which has more than a passing resemblance to a cow) could be ‘on sentry’ but I doubt it ;o)

Gibraltar?

Second thoughts - responded too soon. It's not Gib

  Brumas 21:34 28 Sep 2007

By that was quick, I have just looked at the Gibraltar web site and you are spot on - well done

very similar to the one up on the left.

Your on to something.

And I thought I was wrong at one stage.
Many memories of going through those gates from the Dockyard past the Trafalgar Cemetery, on the right just before the gates, and on to Main Street. There used to be a reasonable bar(s) near by too.

or does the cow look like its got a wooden leg?

That's no wooden leg, it looks more like a pair of stepladders used by old romeo there to mount the animal. I chose the word 'mount' very, very carefully!

Being kind to Bingalau, I think old romeo looks like a matelot down on his luck!

Blimey I never even saw number 29. Too busy watching the rugby tonight. I've just had a moan about number 30 going too quickly. Maybe Brumas has ran out of the hard to guess ones.
