WHERE HAVE I SEEN THIS?
Folks, we have our first ‘Where‘ grand slam, with the fourth Colmorgen family member in a row taking a victory trot around the bases.
Carl Colmorgen of Oakland Street was the first reader to identify last week’s image, which showed a faded (to put it mildly) street sign. The location is Harrison Avenue near Eastside Park. See photo below for reference.
The only other person to nail it was Fran Waldman, a ‘Where’ fan who lives nearby on Mechanic Street.
With his second win in three weeks, Carl rounds out a family four-in-a-row that began with his brother Bob and continued last week with his sister, Kathy Lou.
For those who can’t quite make it out, the sign depicts children on a seesaw to warn of the playground nearby. Not long ago, somebody apparently took a magic marker to the sign and outlined the image to give it some definition, but the black marking has since vanished.
We asked Carl, a retired golf shop instructor who’s now a school crossing guard at Broad Street and Harding Road, how he knew this sign. His email reply (yeah, Carl’s an upper-case typist):
FUNNY PART ABOUT IT I WAS ON HARRISON AVE. TO A GARAGE SALE ON THE
SATURDAY BEFORE THIS CAME OUT. I THOUGHT TO MYSELF THAT SIGN DOES A LOT
Congrats again to Carl for his keen radar, and thanks to Fran.
What do you make of this week’s picture? If you think you know where it is, shoot us an email, please.
