OK, we have the queen (I am American, so no caps) making the first-ever royal visit to Australa in 1954. And, of course, it included a stop at the Wagga Wagga Agricultural Exhibition. Is there still more to to this one?

Yes, there is an aspect to this puzzle that no other puzzle has had. Double points are on offer!

Steve & Harvey win this.

Considering that the poms took 184 years to send out a reigning monarch after claiming the whole continent in 1770, it shouldn't have been a big thing.

We called it the Day We Cooked The Queen. Kids were dropping like flies. Yes, I did get to wave at the Queen.

I think this is the first puzzle where the poster was present at the event. I have more. Next one is a killer, but I wasn't there.

What In The World Happened Here? XLIV: (44)

Famous person lived in the left house. A famous person lives in the middle house. It all came, recursively, to a head in the building at the right.
The phone number is hard to read, so here it is - 020 8968 8877

Gandhi did not live in the middle property, but it might be guarded by velociraptors. Being London, there is a pub involved.

Steve C & I are about to meet up with Bulldog34 et. al., for Cathedral tomorrow.

The building on the right has a sort of a connection with BCATSK - where was the the knife fight?

> snow gone yet up there at Cathedral?

We encountered about a dozen snow patches covering the trail on the north-facing slope where the JMT goes between Tuolumne Meadows and Cathedral Lakes. A few patches left on the flank of Cathedral. I've never seen that much snow left in the middle of July. There was frost on the bear boxes at the trail head at dawn.

Here are my pictures.

Snow beside the trail:

I was parked about 100' downhill from there. Which explains why some hikers went up a little way, then turned right, others went straight up.

This was the site of the Barnes mystery.



"Webster subsequently disposed of most of the body in the Thames, where it was discovered close to Barnes Bridge. Some of the remains ended up as a free meal to local kids, according to the Daily Mail, but what happened to the head remained a mystery.

Now, 132 years later, police have finally identified the unfortunate victim's skull. ADI Bolton reviewed original case files and census records, and deployed radiocarbon testing to provide "compelling evidence that the skull was indeed that of Mrs Thomas".
:

Wiki is here.

There is some confusion as to which Attenborough lived there. Richard directed Ghandi & Jurassic Park.

In any case the missing skull was found in a hole in the wall at the Hole In The Wall Pub.

I guess we didn't do too well on that one. I did get as far as looking up multiple pubs in London with that name. But I was easily sidetracked last week by the day job. Happens.

The summary is up to date.

BTW, "Answer: What In The World Happened Here? XXVIII: (43)" should be 44.

What In The World Happened Here? XLV (45):

Apparently, we've all been running around in the mountains instead of doing the important stuff. This may stump some of you.

I think we can use a stump speech... or at least a small hint.
