A Guessing Game of Sorts

I was looking at other metblogs today, and was taken by an idea I have decided to steal from those across at the Boston Metblog.

The general idea is that we will post a photo from somewhere around Melbourne, and the comments serve as a forum for people to guess where the photo was taken. Extra points can go for any history googled, or even the exact Melways reference!

We’ll start with an easy one! I’m sure everyone who lives in Melbourne has this this at least once! Now comment away…

    Ooh cute idea! But will you provide the answer for those of us who can’t guess? ;) I’m not a resident … that’s my only excuse. I’m sure I probably should have noticed this scene at least once during the time I called Melbourned home, but I’m struggling to recognise it. Any clues?

    I know, but I won’t say yet. Instead I’ll give a clue. The Melway reference is either M, E or H, depending on the page. And while it hasn’t moved, until recently it was higher above the ground.

    What, is no one going to post the right answer? Or did I miss it?

    It’s the big clock inside Melbourne Central, right?

    Hehe, I believe you may be right! The clues definitely helped to confirm my suspicions. Okay Anna, time for another photo please. :)
