I was looking for a similar photo to one I just posted here and this one turned up randomly in Kent on its only example online. I had a spare weekend so just went and got it.

I'm going to get a better picture of the orange Marvel sign sometime. They found it in storage when they did a renovation a few years ago.

Who knew I would be so excited about a box of veggies? Delivered, along with eggs and milk, straight from the farm (not to mention the chickens and the cow) to my front door.

One reason I moved here was I have this view on my doorstep.

This is what is left of the original brick sidewalk from the 1880s that goes from the town square to the railroad tracks.

Is it a race track like Epsom Downs?



Want to play name that object while we're at it?

Guess that one...

Nobody made any guesses so I'll say that this is a close up of a vintage 1920s flapper style beaded dress.

Guess Where UK got both of these in one shot. I didn't even leave any clues in by mistake this time. This is Canterbury.

So was I correct?

It's a race track for horses?

I don't think horses because in the UK, the tracks tend to be quite large, including the buildings (which are taller to allow for views), even in the most rural venues. For example, this is the small racecourse in my home town (Salisbury):

https://www.salisburyracecourse.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/Meeting-8-1024x683.jpg

and Lingfield Park is huge by comparison. Plus (I should have been a detective!) the rails at racetracks are white, so the horses can see them.

I think it's a 'people venue'. Maybe a local cricket pitch in winter? The buildings look like changing rooms.

Maybe we should have a thread for "mystery of the day"!
