Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object. I invite you to leave a comment if you think you know the location or what it is. If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog, when the answer is revealed, the following Monday.
Guest Submissions are very welcome!
Please note that I will release comments in the latter part of each week, usually Thursday or Friday, Australia time, and in this way, everyone can have a guess without a spoiler being revealed prematurely.
This Week’s Monday Mystery Photograph
Snow the blogger from SnowmeltsSomewhere submitted this photograph shortly before she took a blogging break to have her baby.
Can you guess in what country this staircase is located?
Previous Mystery Photo
The photo here under, of me, standing beside a soldier from a historical re-enactment group. The challenge was to find the location for this military group, based on his costume.
This re-enactment group is actually based in Trondheim, Norway. In those days, the King of Norway was actually Prince Christian Frederik of Denmark, so this soldier wears the yellow faced uniform of the Trondheim Regiment, of Northern Grenadiers, in the Danish Norwegian Army fighting the Swedes in 1809 – 1814. Read more about the re-enactment groups here.
Norwegian soldiers had been fighting the Swedes for many years. As many as 3000 Swedish soldiers died out in the mountains on the border of Sweden and Norway near Røros, during a bleak winter as they were retreating back home, defeated.
Here the group are parading in the Constitution Day parade in Trondheim with their drummers. They look rather grand, I think.
Their hats are rather unusual, and remind me a little of a feather duster on a beaver’s back!! And there is my friend from the Monday Mystery photograph – in the middle of the photo!
It was a very difficult challenge and Ted from Recipe Reminiscing and Gerard from Oostermans Treats Blog were closest to the mark! That was so clever of them both!
Good luck this week!
