Three easy ones to get you started: -

c1

1. CAUTION one way flaps

c2

2. What is on the side of grey bin?
L PLATE

c3

3. VINNY's FISH BAR

 

Next - three hard ones to try and find a winner : -

c4

4. How many of the 8 small windows above and below the sign are open? 3

There is only one frame on Streetview to help you.

c5

5. Date on sign? THURSDAY 25th JUNE

Needed very careful placing of the view. The year on the house was not allowed as being slightly out of position and not really a date. The answer by Robert - Tuesday 12 May, must have taken a lot of finding and is extremely blurred. A more generous quizmaster would have allowed this!

c6

6. Number of square block on the three walls? 28 9(E)+9(W)+10(S) = 28

c7

7. Sign: No DOGS are permitted on this site

c8

8. Sign CORONET Copse

(difficult to find this one)

c9

9. NO TIPPING MAX FINE C) ?2000

Very difficult to read, hence the choice of 3 differing length answers

c10

10. Sign: STRICTLY NO PARENTS CARS

c11

11. House name: GLENN Villa

c12

12. The Palace poster, name of film? SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE

c13

13. Signs on doors and wall: POLLING STATION

Rather topical as this church was again being used as a Polling station when the answers were being checked

c14

14. Sign on factory: your IMAGE is our business

c15

15. Sign: MOT's from 35
