The old folks at home, yes indeed the Stephen Foster classic.  It is the Suwannee River.  Nice touch on the highway sign is the few notes of Foster`s tune.  Next please.

Yarmouth, Isle of Wight.    This was the drug bust fishing boat in the background, the Fairey in foreground was Meester Bond heading up to Scotland for a film.   Where do they get those giant spoons ?

Don't be fooled by the sign Arrow, it's not Cambridge, it's further south than that. A clue, it's in England's oldest borough.


I'll put up some Aussie pictures next time O0

Yes your answer is correct......it is looking down on Crown Street at the intersection of Crown and Keira streets in Wollongong NSW...down toward the sea.......from the late 1800's
