As last Friday’s mystery slide got a very positive response, I figured that I’d post another one from quite a while ago. This time, the slide didn’t have the answer marked on it, as it just said “#2”, but I think some smart readers can tell me a little about the following image:
This image is another slide scan from the collection of slides that I received from my father-in-law. Clearly, his father did a bit of traveling, as there are airplanes in the image.
This location has some interesting features, such as the fish pond and the pagoda and looks rather peaceful.
I am looking forward to what you can tell me about this location and its history.
Today, I want to start something a little different: present you with a mystery. Not a deep, dark mystery to be sure, but, rather, something from the past that may interest both young and old.
This image is a scan from a slide, that was not taken by me; I came upon a collection of slides that my father-in-law was going to throw out (they were wrapped up neatly in a paper towel with tape marked trash on them).
Luckily, he was nice enough to check and see, if I wanted the containers that they were stored in, so I asked him, if I could have the slides too. He kind of shrugged and said, “Sure”.
This was a couple of years ago and I promptly bought a slide scanner, but never touched them until this week. After getting a new driver for the scanner from the manufacturer in Taiwan, I fired it up last night and let it scan the first 36 slides.
That is when I noticed this slide that I present to you as a mystery. What do you make of it? What is this location? What is its purpose?
Hope you enjoy this little mystery. If you do, I may bring out more slides from this collection. I’m curious to see what all of you can bring to the light.
