It’s been a while.
But last week’s photo challenge stumped even long-time experts/frequent winners Michael Calise, Fred Cantor and Jacques Voris.
For years, Barbara Sherburne has owned a watercolor by Mitchell Hager. She brought it with her when she moved from Westport. It made a great challenge.
The illustration showed a home and barn on Long Lots Road, a couple of houses down east of North Avenue. (Click here to see.)
Everyone is right: It looks like it could be on Morningside Drive, Cross Highway or North Avenue. After many hours, Cheryl McKenna came up with the old Adams house on the corner of Long Lots and North Avenue (later owned and, famously, renovated by Martha Stewart).
That was close enough. The watercolor showed the property next door.
The house still stands, on Long Lots. The barn, though, is gone.
This week’s photo challenge shows not a place, but a guy. If he’s familiar, click “Comments” below.
