Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Sorry .... I should have read further back. Sam's edited post does seem to give the correct answer cos it most certainly is Shanghai on the Huangpu.

Capt Vimes has it nailed methinks.

Capt vimes... you have the helm...

Here are the photos I took while there... sure you might find the Opium Commission plaque interesting... great story about the wealth of the French and England's crown jewels based on drug dealing during this time in history...

The city section you see is Pudong... this is Shanghai's financial capital or shall I say China...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Binnenstad, Delft, Nederland? It`s the Koepoortbrug in south Holland.

The name derives from the fact that there used to cattle and especially cows across the bridge ( and by then Koepoort ) were put to sleep . In the meadows There used to be in the eastern part of the city several farms in operation . There is a cow with horns on the head of the Koepoortbrug .
