With apologies to Brumas!

Probably be too easy, rare Aerial photo Circa 1920, yes I did say 1920!

Well done guys - I said it would be too easy - but then my name is not Brumas!

Unfair! I live 3 miles away but am only glued to the quiz at 2100 on Friday, so missed it. Leave it to Brumas, interesting as it is.

Agreed, leaving it to Brumas, but could not resist this one - hence One of One!

We must be near neighbors!

I am not far from HMS Collingwood. Howdy neighbour! Spent a long time in and around Pompey harbour in former military days so enjoyed your view of it.

I can see in the future that I shall have to resort to Identification Longshot/Talking Point™ ;o}

Don't change a thing - we all look forward to your cryptic clues, even those of us who are pretty useless at the guessing game.

But it is nice to just say a casual hello to near neighbors, without hogging the thread(s).

Nontek As they say around these parts 'Ney Botha', I think that's how it is spelt ;o}

  Aitchbee 22:45 23 Aug 2012's a suggestion that you may consider.

If there was a way to 'display the answer' (before the answer was legitimately guessed correctly to your postcard puzzle) to the visitors to your friday night competition [like me for instance]...that might add to the entertainment.

It would require a little bit of computer code to allow this to happen.

perhaps...(Do you want to know the answer...but not take part).

This is what they do on Radio4's "I'm Sorry I Havn't A Clue"... when a voice says...

For those listening at home "The answer is..."

This idea would only work on known locations of postards.
