Where am I?

Cateogry: History Quiz
Posted by: Editor on Thursday, September 8, 2016

Submit Answers in Comments (below). Answers will not be revealed until a winner is selected.

I’d say we were lucky that Hermine didn’t strike Sarasota as a hurricane. However, some flooding, downed trees, and power outages were part of the heavy rain event that seemed to go on for days on end. This is not a picture of the recent storm; it was taken in 1966 during some inclement weather. Your job is to figure out where this photo was taken. Where am I?
