Where & When: Game 9

Welcome back! Some of you may be enjoying a day off, so maybe you have a little time to play today’s game. For the initiate or curious, this is a detective game with the objective of determining where the picture was taken and when it was taken; sometimes with added bonuses if you know some history about the area where it was taken.  Most of the pictures are historic, some are closer to contemporary.

Take this picture for example:

Where & When Game 9 [1]

Some commuters have seen this structure and wondered what it was, some may have thought it was nothing of import.  But in reality, this building and a few similar to it are actually very important.  Do you know why?  Perhaps finding the answer to Where will explain.  If you know that answer, then you’ll probably know When another important structure that it compliments was built as well.  Bonus if you know the street associated with this picture.

As usual, do not click on the photo credit, but if you happen to come across it in your sleuthing then it’s open game.  Send your answers to cixposse at gmail dot com; feel free to discuss without revealing the answer.

A frosty mug from The Pop Shoppe [2] if you come up with the answer first.  A can of Virgil’s [3] for our honorary mentions who follow.  Have a good one, I’ll see you later this evening! [Photo credit: Hobo Matt [4]]
