Hell, Harvey, I've lived in Georgia most of my 53 years and I've never heard of it. Had to look it up on Wiki to figure out what the Georgia Guidestones was all about.

OK Track and field, next to an olympic pool,and looks like Polo grounds with horse stables.I am gonna first guess Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club where Prince William AKA Duke of Cambrige,Your Royal Highness, played Polo today.Second guess is Summer Olympics somewhere sometime.

No waffles, waffle irons, or Bill Bowerman on this one.

The track got famous before it got its nice new surface.

wonder if that "V" cut in the grass (lower left) is just a fluke, or means anything?

The oval is a standard 400m track and humans race on it. It was 440yd long (like many other tracks) when its most famous event occurred.

I don't think he was wearing saddle oxfords when he ran, or when he went down the stairs while sliding on the bannister.

Does the Queen have a sense of humor? I doubt that it is a joke. I suspect a legitimate Down Under waggacultural show about the time of the Bannister business.
