Photo Challenge #146

Last week’s photo challenge was one of those I’m-sure-I-saw-it-somewhere images.

If you’ve ever strolled along Soundview Avenue — and every Westporter enjoys the beach exit road at some point — you noticed the handsome gray-shingled home on the corner of Norwalk Avenue.

And you saw — whether you remembered it or not — the red postal box by the porch.

Congratulations to Patricia McMahon, Fred Cantor, Elaine Marino, Catherine Ryan and Seth Goltzer. They remembered exactly where it was. (Click here for the photo.) 

Back in the day, the entire Compo Beach neighborhood was summer homes only. Many — like this now-renovated house — date to the early 20th century. In addition to the postal box, 15 Soundview boasts a historic plaque.

Here’s this week’s photo challenge. If you know where it is, click “Comments” below.

    The pancakes I overcooked a few weeks back. :0

    Combo cannons.

  4. Elaine Marino

    Oops! Compo cannons.

  5. The pothole on the Post Road near Stop & Shop.


  7. After 12 hours, don’t we deserve a hint? I don’t think it has anything to do with Town Hall, even though Lynn U. Miller did snap a great photo of the “Peace Pole” for 06880 on Wednesday

  8. a wild guess: something to do with the rooster weathervane at Westport Playhouse

  9. An eye.

  10. Sorry – it is the cannons. Hard to look at them with a different eye after all these years, but Lynn UY. Miller did it!

  11. I was pretty sure it was the cannons even though it has been years since I have been to Compo.
