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?


Your award this week is the book, John Hamilton Gillespie - The Scot Who Saved Sarasota by Jeff LaHurd. The Friend's of the Sarasota County History Center generously provided this prize. Please consider becoming a member of the Friends; they have some exciting programs coming up soon. Visit them here.

If you would like to be a sponsor of our "Where Am I?" quiz, please call us at (941) 951-7727. It only cost $25 per week for us to set up your ad, and then you only have to provide a prize for the winner. What could be easier?
