Right. About 450 miles in some direction from the fort that had an anniversary in the news a couple of days ago.

By the way, I did not get this one until the nice id by tdtz today. There are some places a few hundred miles to the south that look a lot like that site but I could not find it among them. For good reason, as it turns out.

PS: two things gave this quest away.

1) Family Circle - 25 cents sign in period graphic font/style. Pedestrians in contemporary clothing.
2) Right-click the picture & select Save As.

Sorry about Ft. Sumter.

No worries, mate. I enjoy putting up the challenges, but even more I like seeing other member's event puzzles. Bring it!

What In The World Happened Here? VII:

Behind the cheap deal fencing is a parking plaza - ideal for the getaway vehicle. If there was one.
