Post by: Neil on May 29, 2013, 11:28:55 pm
Just thought I'd start a new thread with a nautical topic........entitled "where in the world".........
 
rules are simple..guess where and then put your own place with a nautical theme for the next person to guess..............must have a nautical theme though..........
 
here's the first..........and just to get the ship rolling.............it's dog simple.

On the photo you can see the old and new lifeboathouses.
I remember going to the old one in 1956 to see the new
watson lifeboat Henry Comber Brown It was state of the rt
at the time.
The building on the pier was RAF Tenby home to two ASRL's
during the war.
I remember in the 50's there was a detachment from Pembroke Dock
with a 60' Pinnace usually riding to a buoy just off the lifeboat slip.

Indeed it is, in Cooktown, Northern Queensland; an interesting, if not remote location. The road then quite new is about 200 miles from Cairns and we passed no more than a dozen other vehicles along the entire route. You can go around the coast but you need a four wheel drive vehicle to do so.

The hill is Liathach (3,456ft)  The picture is taken from the A986. It was my ambition to climb it but since I had the heart attack I'll haveto think about it again. It is, without doubt, one of the most inspiring areas I have ever visited on my travels however, as arrow says, beware of the mighty midge, they really do bite - hard!

I agree with LB, the Highlands are gorgeous. I have had the fortune to drive through the area on four occasions with a friend on driving holidays and yearn to return. The North coast is also brilliant, go up via the east coast from Latheron on the A9 and see the moors. It is just so peaceful it isn't true:O) The Melvich Lodge used to be ne of the only 5star B&Bs with a lounge that oozed a peat fire aroma.

Sorry LB.......news travels slowly downhill to OZ...however I am now enlightened  :o that this had happened some 7 years ago........but still could be a 'Yugoslavic' flag on a rowing boat on a lonely pebbly beach somewhere else I suppose...........{-) Derek

" Yugoslavia ceased to exist after Montenegro decided to split from Serbia and go its own way. The original Yugoslavian Republic consisted of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia. After the breakup of the USSR back in the early nineties a lot of eastern european countries took their cue and hastily departed the soviet era too. Yugoslavia quickly went into meltdown with most of its parts becoming independent countries, Until recently Serbia and Montenegro were the last remaining parts making up Yugoslavia. The final fallout was having Kosovo (formerly part of Serbia) also breaking away to form a new country"

One website drops you into Google streetview somewhere on earth and you have to work out where and mark the spot on a world map.

Takes detective work to find the answer sometimes, but if you get within 50 metres of your start point you have done well.

Dunkerque, Bénouville Bridge est non.

The Edgerton - Morpeth passage Bascule bridge was restored over twenty years ago but it has not worked since nor does the Dock Pub exist any more; ah, I see on re-reading the reply that I was confusing the Bascule bridge between Edgerton and the East Float - that one was removed so long ago that I had all but forgotten about it. This image was take just over a year ago though.

The Duke Street Bridge is not part of the "Four Bridges"

The term "Great Float" has never been used in my life time, it is either the East or West Float.

"Tower"? Erm, never known as that as far as I know, a letter of the Alphabet will suffice.

You lot give up far to easily. Does this mean that I get another go :}

A bridge is the correct answer of course. It is the last of the four bridges at Birkenhead to continue to work and dates from 1928 or thereabouts, it's still in continuous use being the main connection to the Twelve Quays ferry Terminal and the motorway system. It is due for replacement in the next two or three years.

Perch Rock Lighthouse existed well before the fort and New Brighton were thought of. Here we see it on a benign evening in June of this year though it's not always like this. There are many images on Google including one of Bowwave getting his feet wet I see! If you come back a bit you may be able to discern Budgie Towers, currently undergoing extensive renovations.

I think Tica's pic refers to the International Student "Olympics", and the column is somewhere the games have taken place.
Unfortunately there are a lot of them, both Winter and Summer, since 1923 (Paris).
Given the type of plants and grass, I think it is Northern Hemisphere, but there is just too many places to search.

Where the real Victory was built. It was made for a film company in the 1930s for a film about Lord Nelson, played by Laurence Olivier. It cost $5000 then! It was fully functional and all guns could fire for the battle scenes. I want it!!

Yes, Hubbard Glacier. An amazing sight. The face is twice as high as the ship.

Re hols, we have got to the age where if we don't see a few of the sights of the world then we may never get the opportunity, very much justified in that this year we had to cancel our main holiday because I had a health problem. Not been able to walk any distance for the last eight weeks. Hopefully it will clear up but it's taking its time.

It is the one just up the road from (as in nearest toilets to) the underground tunnels recently opened to the public under the cliffs (about a 10 minute walk so I am told- its about 1/2  hours walk from the visitor centre where you get the tickets).
and the light was lit once again for the Queens diamond Jubilee.

I'm sure I would not be venturing to naysay such an esteemed Heilan Chentleman but as Dougie would tell you himself, 'Sassenach' refers to a 'Saxon'. Yon hairy, uncivilised, tribe furth of Scotia in the Deep Sooth of this island.

I will call this one a score draw as both are correct but the correct name is the Victoria Tower not the Hydraulic Tower. There are only two examples of this design in the World the other apparently is in St. Petersburg.

There are five DIALS any one of which can be seen from a point on a compass. The current owners, Peel Ports say that they are going to restore it  however, I'll believe that when it happens.

No swearwords in Gaelic just blasphemy and medical terms I believe, nice.  Now I have an idea for a nice hexagonal clock tower for "Where in the world" :}

Derek, no foliage like that near Hadrian`s Wall ! I think it is more likely to be in your neck of the woods, certainly very much south of Hadrian`s Wall.  Maybe Ned Kelly`s hideout  but I don't see a boat connection there.

I have checked the original hi res image and there is no animal lurking, it's just a random pattern of grasses. Possibly in it's heyday this place might have had lions around, (it isn't in Africa), and Lions do symbolise the entrance to the place, plus a nearby locality is famous for its lion, - I have probably given too much away now.... The nautical reference is strong but indirect.

You are quite right actually Perkasaman  I knew I had given it away with reference to the Lion Gate and the Nemean Lion killed by Hercules.

Well it is the entrance to Uig Bay at the far northern end of the Trotternish peninsula so I will let it go at that - but I have yet to find the name for the headland. the area is well worth an extended visit if your in the area.

Hi LB,
The northern headland at the entrance to Uig bay is Ru Idrigill.
I have had the pleasure of some sea kayaking out of Uig & up the coast to the north. Some great views from the sea.

Post by: Nemo on November 07, 2015, 09:16:15 pm
I think boatcaptain is probably correct as the lighthouse and fort could well be at Fort Perch Rock showing the ship heading upriver. I had a sneaking suspicion that it might have been the Mersey but as I had no knowledge of that area, I posed the question. I am interested in the Paddle Steamer 'Elizabeth' which was the first steamship to operate on the Mersey and was introduced in 1815 to operate between Liverpool and Runcorn. I thought this picture may have been of the Elizabeth. I am still not sure of the identity of the ship though. Thanks for suggestions to all. :-))

Yes, the Paddle Steamer picture is Perch Rock but I had been thinking Hurst Castle. I found this on the web.
Walters, Samuel[/t]CreditNational Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London, Caird CollectionMaterialsoil on canvasMeasurementsPainting: 723.9 x 1206.5 mm; Frame: 910 x 1400 mm
  • The Paddle Steamer 'Ariel'
  • A scene showing shipping on the Wirral, now known as New Brighton, Liverpool. In the background is the Perch Rock Fort and Lighthouse. Other shipping is also depicted, including another paddle steamer on the left, together with smaller sailing boats. The paddle steamer in the painting has always thought to have been the ‘Ariel’. Formerly called the ‘Arrow’ she was built in 1821-22, and went into straight into service at Dover. She was transferred to the mail service in April 1825 and it is possible that she is shown visiting Liverpool between 1825-33 en route for Ireland. The ‘Arrow’ was taken over by the admiralty 1837 and renamed ‘Ariel’. She continued to be the Dover packet until 1846. A steam packet service from Liverpool to Kingstown was commended by the PO August 1826. There were four vessels on this route, ‘Dolphin’, ‘Comet’, ‘Etna’ and ‘Thetis’ and were built large enough to enable them to compete with steamships of private companies operating from Liverpool to Ireland. Since this painting shows a furled sail behind the funnel and the riser pipe from the boiler safety valves it is more likely to be one of the larger Liverpool Post Office packets such as the ‘Lightning’ which was the first PO steam packet to be ordered from Evans of Rotherhithe in 1820. The painting is signed and dated ‘Walters and Son 1831’.

I'll have to give it to you Ned, but it actually wasn't built as a coast watch tower.

when the original Coast Guard tower was deemed unfit and unsafe, the CGA decided not to replace it with a new one, as they have the large one near to where I live in Knot End, which covers almost as much of the coast westwards as the old one did and more to the east as well. Mind you it had not been used by the CGA for a time and was being used by the RSPB for watching migratory birds.

So the RSPB granted money to the local council to build a new tower for their purposes, and was initially to be only for their use.

However National Coast Watch, at the time a fledgling organisation in the north west approached the RSPB and asked if they could occupy one of the levels for their charitable organisation and so it is now known as "the new coastguard " station it was in fact designed at the instigation of the RSPB.

Over to you, Ned.

 Richmond bridge over the Thames.
   :P

Richmond Bridge is an 18th-century stone arch bridge that crosses the River Thames at Richmond, connecting the two halves of the present-day London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It was designed by James Paine and Kenton Couse.

The bridge, which is a Grade I listed,[1] was built between 1774 and 1777, as a replacement for a ferry crossing which connected Richmond town centre on the east bank with its neighbouring district of East Twickenham to the west. Its construction was privately funded by a tontine scheme, for which tolls were charged until 1859. Because the river meanders from its general west to east direction, flowing from southeast to northwest in this part of London, what would otherwise be known as the north and south banks are often referred to as the "Middlesex" (Twickenham) and "Surrey" (Richmond) banks respectively, named after the historic counties to which each side once belonged.

The bridge was widened and slightly flattened in 1937–40, but otherwise still conforms to its original design. The eighth Thames bridge to be built in what is now Greater London, it is today the oldest surviving Thames bridge in London.

Really, there don't need to be any guesses on this one, BUT WHAT A FANTASTIC DAY I HAD.

My friend neil took me over for the day from Heysham on Wednesday for a day at the races.

We watched the day's activities from Braddon Church, arriving at 07.00 hours and got front row seats.

Sadly because of mist and then some idiot parking a vehicle on the Air ambulance Helicopter landing spot  which had to be moved before any racing could begin.....racing started at 12.45, but we were not disappointed, other than the last race of the "lightweights" started just as check in finished for our ferry home. Had it not been for the early delay we would have seen 3 races and two practice's.

Sadly on the first race John McGuinness retired just below our seating area, but at least we got a good look at his bike after the race.

Just brilliant. Arrived home at 23.30 hours having started off at 02.15 hours.

   Hence the reference to school atlas, (got mine 70 years ago) plus  the quality of the illustration is  a giveaway to an older system of imaging, looks pre Mao , no red flags.   Don't know if the Forbidden City has water.    BTW who is the person on your avatar ?

Post by: KevinM on June 24, 2016, 11:14:09 am
Photo taken about 8 years ago on an ixus 60, been reduced in size so degraded a bit for easy posting.


Forbidden city has a moat around it but no lakes etc inside the walls other than the odd small pond in the gardens


Image is Ghinggis Khaan (Using the correct Mongolian spelling)
Title: Re: Where in the world?
Post by: KevinM on June 24, 2016, 11:17:18 am
The reason for no red flags is linked to the place itself, note the yellow flags which is a huge clue :)


The colours of the roofs also indicate that it cant be the forbidden city as the buildings there have roofs of two colours to indicate usage

Is nobody else going to have a guess ?   Yellow flags ..hmmm, typhoid ,plague, isolation hospital ? Or does the yellow flag belong to higher class in the classless society, maybe the mandarins of old ?  I give up.

It would be nice if we had Chinese members in the ROC. Does the "Great Wall" prevent that ?  BBC "Click" this morning is all about Chinese electronics.
Title: Re: Where in the world?
Post by: KevinM on June 26, 2016, 09:36:27 am
there is no reason why ROC members cant access the forum and forums in general other than language barriers, the only real barriers I know of are the well known Facebook blocks but many people use proxy servers to get round that restricion.


Whilst a lot of young people speak basic english having learnt at school its only in the major cities that they are likely to get a chance to talk to a forigner. Writing is much more difficult as its not just a simple translation the two languages have different fundamental concepts. The older generation as a rule dont know english.

I live in Beijing about 50% of my time, month there then a month UK etc.


I dont know of any boat clubs whatsoever, I do travel around china quite a bit including well away from "western" areas but water hobbies seem to be boating as in riding in them, fishing and kite flying (they like the steady air streams you tend to get along the rivers) but then Im all new to this, I know a couple of steam enthusiasts and one is into boats but lives in the south and is active on a number of forums.

Not Bahrain Island, further North but not all the way.  The vessel is a first vessel in a class of environmental patrol vessels named the Lillian Ngoyi , but she's an awful long way from home.  I fear that this might prove too difficult or that you all go aground on it.

going by the terrain if its the Med it'll be Cyprus , Crete or one of those Island groups , ship looks more like the FAR group oil supply / rescue boats so could be Iceland or Faroes

The copy I have of that picture only says S/V Lillian, hence the confusion.  So it's Terror Bay off King William Island, Canada.  Interesting fact, Terror Bay was named for one of the ships from the ill fated Franklin expedition, H.M.S. Terror.  The location of the wreck was unknown until 2016 when she was discovered in Terror bay.  When the bay was named in 1910 they were completely ignorant of the fact that the bay's namesake was resting at the bottom of the bay.

I didn't see the film Davie, I cheated and Googled it, terrain was very Icelandic.  I`ve been thinking about an idea for a "where is it" type theme based on statues after seeing that one of the figure hauling a rope.  Maybe a "who, why and where answer required" , a nautical theme might be too restricted, too many admirals but not excluded.

Yep, thanks for that. There is a similar statue(s) in North Shields which, although depicting a fishwife, has always been known as the "Wooden Dolly" - a google will provide pretty much the whole story. :-))

At last one that I can answer. This is the statue of Bamse at Montrose harbour. Bamse was a Norwegian St Bernard who served on the Norwegian minesweeper Thorodd during WW2. He was a registered member of the Navy and became the mascot for the Norwegian navy until his death in Montrose in 1944.http://www.bamsemontrose.co.uk/index.php (http://www.bamsemontrose.co.uk/index.php)

Correct Jim :-)).  An intelligent dog that used to go round the pubs to collect sailors and guide them back to their ship.  He had a bus pass to allow him to travel to the outskirts of town and further, a good read if you find the book.  As a footnote, this breed, Newfoundlander, is also nicknamed  "water dogs" and are trained as rescue animals in water . They are good strong swimmers and can pull a person to safety. Massive paws act as paddles

Sorry...out of turn [again!]......but hey %) we got a bronze dog on a box too  O0...with a nautical theme also

In 1857 in a little town about 1/2 way between Sydney & Melbourne called Gundagai....well all of the shearers & drovers from miles around would come into the local pub on Friday nights....drink themselves stupid and create Mayhem

At the end of the night the dog would drag each of the drunken fools to the local Billagong & throw them in to sober up :-))

So after all these years in 1926, the towns folk had an image of the nameless dog cast in bronze & mounted on a Tucker Box

Now if we only had a member who lived in Canberra .......he may be able to tell us more, as Canberra is only a hop, skip & a jump from the famed statue at Gundagai  of...."Dog on the Tucker Box"{-)

Derek

PS....[for the Poms]....a Billabong is a sort of pond of water, fed by a creek  :P.....you may have heard the one about a Jolly Jumbuck camped by a Billabong....under the shade of a Coolabah tree [and complete with his wine cask]

St Georges Square, to be exact............made a citizens arrest and detained a woman  in a building in the Square two summers ago,
for assault by spitting in a lady's face
until the police arrived......then she kicked off and kicked the arresting police officers who cuffed her and bundled her into a van, which she then proceeded to kick hell out of the van, lol..........got a letter of thanks from the old bill for that.


Felt quite proud of myself.........


perhaps that's were my younger daughter has got the notion of joining the police force from, lol.

North Korea great choice by I'll never be allowed in there due to my travel history in South Korea and the US, Korean is way of from the Chinese language  and again  it's way more down south

The island where this picture has been taken is a multi culture area and they have a little China, little India and it is know by the art on the walls etc. it belongs to a country  where a big camera brand has its products produced and they drive in the "wrong" side of the road seen from my point of view.

Correct!

Scalloway is the largest settlement on the North Atlantic coast of Mainland, the largest island of the Shetland Islands, Scotland. It had a population of approximately 812, at the 2001 census. Until 1708 it was the capital of the Shetland Islands (now Lerwick, on the east coast of the Shetland Mainland).

Scalloway is the location of the North Atlantic Fisheries College (part of the University of the Highlands and Islands), which offers courses and supports research programmes in fisheries sciences, aquaculture, marine engineering and coastal management. It is also home to the Centre for Nordic Studies. Nearby are the Scalloway Islands, which derive their name from the town.

Coulport actually.
RNAD with Floating Dock.
I was there in 1970 on a H boat
We had 2 days of Tidal Stream Obs to do.
We were anchored  dropping tree poles off the stern
and taking speed and angles of flow as you do.
Captain decided to take some angles from the jetty
so went across in the Gemini.
Cold day so he has his survey hat on, Russian furry thing
Mod Plod rush across and Arrest him.
You can't make this sort of thing up.
Later he became an Admiral, Hydrographer of the Navy.
Also Ruler of the Preston Guild.
JAL Myers RN
Also Captain of Fawn with Charles POW under his wing.

AM or PM?

Not a recent image either judging by the vehicles MK 1 tranny van for instance and what looks like a MK11 Zodiac so, presume the date is late sixties early seventies, what looks like a road sign showing directions to a ferry port or similar also.

No time to deal with it now anyway, got the shopping to do and put the XJ onto dollies.

Clarkson memorial, Wisbech?
Title: Re: Where in the world?
Post by: Martin [Admin] on December 30, 2017, 12:39:20 pm
 
You see, you guys are too good!!  Correct!

Between the Crescent and the Town Bridge stands the elegant and graceful memorial to the man who is probably Wisbech's most eminent citizen. Thomas Clarkson, son of the Headmaster of Wisbech Grammar School, devoted the greater part of his adult life to procuring the abolition of slavery. He was fired by his writing of a prize essay at St John's College, Cambridge, on "Is it right to make slaves of others against their will ?"

As he went on to discover something of the true extent of this evil in society, it was on the way to London, near Ware, that he had a 'Damascus Road' experience. This led to a determination to see 'these calamities to the end', instead of becoming a clergyman as he had intended. He succeeded in turning the Abolition Campaign into one of the major issues of the day. In this he managed to enlist the help of William Wilberforce who, as an MP, became the movement's champion in Parliament. Clarkson pioneered the technique of investigative journalism, tirelessly travelling to all the major seaports, especially Bristol and Liverpool, to acquire first-hand evidence for presentation to Parliament on the horrors of the slave trade. He organised local committees to raise funds, canvas and collect petitions to present to Parliament. He encouraged the boycott of sugar and other slave-produced goods.

Success came only slowly, but in 1807 the slave trade in this country was abolished. Then, in his declining years at Playford Hall, near Ipswich, Clarkson continued to fight for slavery to be outlawed in the British Colonies (1833), and in the United States, where the fight was still on at the time of Clarkson's death in 1846.

Clarkson could not have achieved this success without the help of Wilberforce, his indispensable collaborator in Parliament. But Wilberforce would probably never have started on this path if it had not been for Clarkson with his single-minded devotion to this cause.

In 1881, Clarkson's appreciative birthplace paid for the erection of this fine monument by Sir George Gilbert Scott, brother of the Rev John Scott, Vicar of St Peter's. Sir George had previously designed both the Martyrs' Memorial in Oxford and the Albert Memorial, but unhappily he died before the monument was completed.

The memorial includes a more than life-size statue of Clarkson, looking towards the town of Wisbech which he loved. Below it are bas-reliefs of Granville Sharp and William Wilberforce, his fellow-workers, on two of the sides. On a third is 'The Supplicant', a chained Negro in supplicatory attitude and the inscription 'Remember them that are in bonds'. This was derived from the Wedgewood cameo designed by Hackwood.

As so often happens with great causes, slavery went out at the front door, but has come in again at the back. Anti-slavery International needs support today as much as Clarkson's work did in the nineteenth century. In 1996, Wisbech people succeeded at last, in placing a memorial to Clarkson in Westminster Abbey . Many of us will also remember the St Peter's Rose Fair of that year in which the long chancel of that church was made to represent a slave ship. A sad but splendid sight.

Just back tracking....my work was complete, the 100,000 vessel main engine could now be controlled as per design by the Woodward governor amplifier pump revision [the Singaporean engineers destroyed it in dock a few weeks earlier]

The vessel was a P Boat...the Australian Prospector....one of four P named vessels ordered by the Whitlam Government for the Australian National Line...unfortunately on completion no charter work could be found for them so they sat anchored in the fjords of Norway until charter work could be found 

https://www.flotilla-australia.com/3anl.htm#australian-prospector-3anl

No we did not call into Esperance on the milk run back down to Perth...but the F28 just zoomed up....then zoomed down....landed & zoomed up again all the way back down the coast.......[must have been too many of the Asahi beers waiting for the tug for the 2 hour lift back to shore]

Just butting in :o  Derek, the Glebe Island Bridge was closed to all traffic, including pedestrians, in 1995, but the Pyrmont Bridge, also of the swing variety, remains open to pedestrians, vehicular traffic having been diverted in 1981. The bridge is opened regularly for demonstration purposes. I have walked it many times, and have driven over it on numerous occasions back in the 60s and 70s. The now defunct Sydney Monorail also used the Pyrmont Bridge.

It closed in June 2013, the photo was taken in November 2009. I thought it was great, but many Sydneysiders did not like it at all. During my coach driving days we would take school groups from our area on excursions to Sydney, and a ride on the Monorail was nearly always included. The kids loved it, as did the adults  :-) . I was sorry to see it go.

Post by: derekwarner on January 14, 2018, 01:42:27 am
Thanks Peter.......it is some 19 years since we were at Darling Harbour....we drove in from the western side and parked at the Novotel 

I am pretty sure that the swing bridge was open for pedestrian traffic & the Monorail was functioning, however sore & tired feet won over & we caught a water taxi launch from Darling harbour out & under the Bridge to a disembarkment point near the Sydney Water Police base....and then dinner in one of those old huge converted sandstone & timber multi story storage warehouse buildings

Best of all was the water taxi skipper gave me his card & advised he could be back  in 15 minutes when called...true to his word, after our dinner & more walking he collected two weary travellers & we were back at the Novotel in 10 minutes...........I think the cost each way was $10.00...........super value riding on your own personal taxi launch under our Coat Hanger  O0

The first Lighthouse on Bidston Hill was built in 1771, further from the body of water it lit than any other lighthouse in the world, ever. The octagonal tower housed a massive parabolic reflector, twelve feet in diameter, developed at the Bidston Signals Station by William Hutchinson (http://www.bidstonlighthouse.org.uk/history/people/#WilliamHutchinson), Liverpool Harbour Master and one-time privateer.

Title: Re: Where in the world?
Post by: RST on February 17, 2018, 08:45:17 pm
Old news but Martin posted Bridge on River Kwai.  I went to Kanchanaburi (not the location of the original WWII bridge but a little downstream where the bridge is now).  It's full of tourists and tat  -there's large black monoliths with the names of those who died building the railway which I read most of in between folk taking pics/selfies.  We went up stream by private boat hire, had to convince the guy NOT to take us to the tourist tat -which was a bit of a mission and refusal to get out the boat where he wanted to go.  There is the "J.E.A.T.H." (Death) museum upstream.  Fascinating but absolutely horrific stories and pictures that will stay with me forever.  There is a large immaculately well kept war memorial with a huge field of crosses and plaques -most guys that died there building the railway seemed to be 18-30yrs old.  A lot of Scots and Aussies.  I was there with two other friends and we all had tears in our eyes by the end.  We were apparently literally the ONLY folk that went to the museum and memorial that day, everyone goes just to take pics of the later steel bridge downstream and buy tat to say they were there.

Sorry, I just had to say that -it touched me forever visiting there.  It's a cheap taxi ride from Bangkok (relatively speaking!).  We tipped our driver a tenner for waiting all day and he was well chuffed!  Plus we saw stuff that most I imagine don't see -nobody seemed to care about the significance of the place.

Yes well done both. I am so impressed that you thought it looked Patagonian - I don't think that anything would elicit that response from me. There was a small clue in that if you look at the 2 pictures they are taken from different sides so they were taken as we went round the horn - Cape Horn.

Try this one. Very different and globally significant.
