Wow — last week’s Photo Challenge was harder than I thought.
The image itself was obvious: an aerial photo of Staples High School, in its autumnal glory. (Click here for the great shot.)
The challenge was: Where in Westport can you see the actual photograph?
There were plenty of incorrect guesses: Westport Library, the Senior Center, the Board of Education office, Rolnick Observatory, a charging station (!), even Staples itself.
Here’s the correct answer: It hangs in Town Hall — on the main floor, around the first corner to the right as you walk in the front door. To be precise: near the tree warden and Conservation Commission’s office.
It’s just part of a remarkable series of aerial photos, all taken by Larry Untermeyer a few years ago. They provide a great, comprehensive, beautiful bird’s-eye view of our town.
Congratulations Matt Murray, Tammy Barry, Patti Brill, Wanda Tedesco, Bruce Salvo and Andrew Colabella. You must spend a lot of time at Town Hall.
The rest of you: Go see the photos for yourselves!
