I still have no idea how the original illustration relates to the shootout at Stringybark.

Yeah, this one depended more on the clues - but it was an interesting journey. My next posts will be more faithful to the geography.

Here. Lots of interesting stuff.

I chose the drawing because the old photos were really small & fuzzy, and the newer photos didn't offer any clues.

What In The World Happened Here? XXX (30):

First uniquely identify the city, then look for a theatre. Mick Jagger performed there. XXX is actually a clue.

OK, It's clear we need some clues.
You could look for a pub that used to be here for a tot 'n ham sandwich. Keep a wary eye out for beer.

City might be Boston. Looks like the Old North church in the upper right.Could be Boson Gardens I am sure Mick has played there.

Rod, think globally like all the college presidents tell graduating classes ad nauseum.

the Waggamaster threw out at least two clues including that symbol of "Mind the Gap"-land. Boston's is a clunker in comparison.

I wrote up a clue early this morning, but I guess I forgot to submit it.

Keep a sharp lookout for beer, and don't go down into cellars. And maybe carry a bucket?

That's a good one!

You could employ a specialist to carry the bucket. But it's not the kind, it's the quantity that matters.

The event has it's roots in 19th. century engineering calculations and materials technology - or "yeah, that looks strong enough".

And if it weren't for the fact that a few people were killed, it would be humorous.

clue
really big clues tot 'n ham sandwich + London Underground symbol = look up Tottenham station with Google maps. Mick Jagger clue is Dominion Theatre also in the picture.

Tottenham with beer "events" gets you to 1814

Many thanks to Waggoogling

now if I can find out how to remove all names from maps, I'll post one when I get back from a weekend away

I guess I lack the world knowledge to play. I will keep plunking at it though.

This is what really happened. Stories of alcohol poisoning by brave souls who tried to stop the flood by drinking it just aren't true.

Just as an aside, check out this sat view. Compare to my picture. Shadows appear to be the same, and traffic looks exactly alike. Where did the crane go?

Even with modern materials and engineering simulations, things break. Would you live downstream from the Three Gorges Dam?
