WHERE HAVE I SEEN THIS?

Where053107

Bob Colmorgen did it again, identifying last week’s shot as a boarded-up door at the former Anderson Brothers cold-storage warehouse at Monmouth Street and Bridge Avenue.

Bob, a longtime Red Bank fireman in who continues to volunteer though he now lives in Eatontown, explains that the ‘F.O.’ on the sign alerts emergency responders to the presence of a floor opening they should look out for, lest they fall through.

With his answer, Bob wraps up Year One of Where Have I Seen This? which debuted with redbankgreen on June 1, 2006. And for the seventh time in the past 11 weeks, we’ve got one of the three Colmorgen siblings in the winners circle.

They know their home turf well, those Colmorgen kids.

We’ve got the complete list of winners below. Thanks to all who’ve played, whether they ‘won’ or not.

Frankly, we’ve had some twinges of doubt over whether we were right to make this feature a competition in the first place, as opposed to simply acknowledging all who submitted correct or even mistaken answers.

What do you think? And any other suggestions regarding this feature? Is it too easy? Too hard? The door’s always open.
