I have actually sailed on these waters but surprisingly enough these are not my pics.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

using my SWAG I can say it is a vintage sailing ship in Sydney Bay, early 1900

Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.

Era is about right but you are on the wrong continent and in the wrong hemisphere.

Was Uruguay Spanish or Portuguese ? or am I thinking of Brazil ?

Supposed to be a veiled hint that you needed to look to Europe, specifically Iberia.

Oh so close. Yes indeed the Portuguese cod fishing fleet. Yes indeed Portugal but not Porto.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

My "research" indicates the Argus sailed out of Lisbon to fish the grand banks. So the photo was in Lisbon harbor?

Close enough for me SeaDuction. In fact just outside of Lisbon Harbour on the way up to Cascais. I'm pretty certain that is Estoril in the background of the first pic.

Your turn.
