Maybe it isn't French after all.... I just realized that there's not a single moped in sight!

I was sure it was somewhere on Guadeloupe, but Google Earth wasn't my friend and I found nothing similar. I'd check further south if the darned internet connection weren't so slow here.

Other than France, the only other place that I know that has those little trains, is Martinique. I think this might be Saint Pierre.

Yes, Geoff.. well done. The event alluded to is, of course, the 1901 eruption of Mt Pele.. an amazingly destructive blast that left, IIRC only two survivors.. one out to sea, another in a 'solitary cell' in a nearby prison.
Many gutted ruins remain; the prison, a theatre among them





the 'survivor's' cell in the prison basement:



Typical EU funded improvements:



The 'Villian" today



You're up, Geoff... nicely done.

Lets try a change of pace. This was a major center for wooden boat building.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Very nice pictures and challenging identification. I get a feel of old Holland, but that red ensign leads one in a different direction. Would this location be somewhere in Sussex, U.K.?

Obviously the red ensign was in response to faster, so right country but wrong county. (The second picture is from the web because none of mine showed an ensign clearly)

There is a statue near the water that commemorates an ancient but little known battle.

Despite being an ancient settlement, there is an American connection which is celebrated by a display in one the buildings.
