Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That looks like the Brandon Shores power station. If it is then, from the angle of the picture, it would appear to have been taken from Sparrows Point. But I think that there are only old dock yards there, no marinas. Could it have been taken from one of the marinas near Rock Hall or am in completely the wrong place??

The stacks at the old Bethlehem Steel are long gone which makes it difficult to find on GE.
I thought that I was looking at the Brandon Shores power station which, from Rock Hall, would have been just to the left of Bethlehem Steel. I feel I cheated :-)


Anyway, this could be very easy if you know it.

I guess that was a pretty dumb statement.

The buildings (the old ones) are quite well known.

When you say the old ones you refer to the Greenwich Naval Museum building?

Is that the Thames River in the background? I think DJL has it.
