Post a photo that either you took or you know exactly where the photo was taken. Others have to guess what the pic is of and/ or where it was taken.

OK, here's an easy one. Where is this?

Does that price included the one-of-a-kind artwork depicting a drunk snowman? 'Cause if it does, its a steal at 175-9.

I'm not sure where it is but I'm gonna guess the Wildfire Bakery on Quadra at Mason?

It's obviously a baseball diamond... but where... I'll say Hampton Park.

I'm almost positive it's not Lambrick Park.

What they...?

Are they in memory of pets run over or something?

Oh, sure. Gumgum posts a picture for the trivia contest and you're all over it like a fat kid on a Mars bar. I post one and almost no one attempts an answer.

Well, regardless, I'll bring it to a close and give you the answer: these signs can be found in the 1000 block of Clare Street in Fairfield.

Huh, those signs are a mystery to me. Neighbourhood didn't look familiar either.

All of the schools were built around that time so I'm going to guess one of the schools. South Park.
