If you are into murder mysteries, the best place in Europe is here, in Murder One, the biggest specialist crime bookshop.
Today, the wonderful world of the Daily Photo brings you the first international quiz.
Your mission, should you accept it, is to discover the two Daily Photo sites that have a linked post today. Entries by email to londondailyphoto (at) gmail.com, progress can be tracked in my comments box, the first three winning entries will get a postcard from both of the sites. There are clues in each of the two sites text on the post, and here are some more clues:
They are a world apart.
One is not in Old North Scotland, the other isn't that far away.
A celt sewn lump of coal marks one end, the other has a recent connection with ancient games.
Is it Art, or is it Paul? (a little more cryptic, those last ones)
(More clues will appear through the day)
Good luck, and good hunting.
Mark, sorry, Barcelona and
Barcelona is not the answer (nor are San Diego and
12:40 - Chris, Carment, Kathrine, you are the winners! The two sites are Newcastle and Sydney, who both have the same design of bridge. The story of the two bridges is fascinating, I recommend you have a look.
Decipering the cryptic clues:
One is not in Old North Scotland - sydney is in New South Wales, the other isn't that far away, Newcastle is near Scotland.
A celt sewn lump of coal marks one end, the other has a recent connection with ancient games. A Celt sewn = Newcastle, famous for its coal, Sydney held the Olympics
Is it Art, or is it Paul? Sorry about these - Art Garfunkel, Paul Simon, Bridge over Troubled Waters.
Thanks all for taking part, the winners will gettheir postcards for Sally Sydney and Chris Newcastle.
