Time for a harder puzzle. Made even more fun by the fact the building is no longer there. It's now an archeological site. And, as is often the case in this thread, there was a Nobel awarded.

has the photo had its left side cropped to conceal a clue, or was it simply taken by someone with no respect for symmetry?

Posted as found. The real clue has not been cropped out.

It looks like a perfectly nice old building that could be at any number of eastern US universities, not to mention European ones. Or it could be some other institutional building.

does not look that way, but I think it might be Chinese from some of the symmetry clues I followed.

The "symmetry" clues are non operational. This building is was in a country that has produced 120 Nobel winners. Another image?

Well, the US has 333 and Germany has 102, so that leaves...

OK, you made this one take some work.

I found a couple of references to an archaeological site formerly occupied by a building at a famous university. (Incidentally, the university has been featured before on WITWHH.) And quite a site it is, with prehistoric monuments and a 6th century settlement.

No Nobel Prize in archaeology, though. Literature? I don't recall the creator of 007 ever winning. More likely Physiology and Medicine.

Ian, no, but Alexander Fleming won it for penicillin. Is this on the correct, er, needle track?

Fleming is not the specific answer, but you are on the right track.

I assume that the "what" in WITWHH is a Nobel Prize that included two Oxford researchers in addition to the guy who was not named Ian.

If I flew over today, would the picture look the same? Or would there be another island? I mean, what if a volcano erupted after they took the picture? And, by the way, how did Moses... oh, never mind.
