Last week’s posting hit the Photo Challenge sweet spot.
It was indeed a challenge. Most guesses were wrong (and all over the Westport map). A few were right.
It impelled readers to provide thoughts on the back story too. Along the way, we traveled back in (and learned about) our town’s history.
Frank Rosen’s image of an abandoned brick and rock structure deep in some woods was not taken at Baron’s South, Nash’s Pond, Post Road West near Kings Highway South, or either the Evergreen Avenue, Willowbrook or Wilton Road/Kings Highway cemetery.
The correct answer: Newman Poses Preserve off Bayberry Lane. Specifically, it’s past a dilapidated bridge, near the river. (Click here to see.)
Was it an ice house? A cow tunnel? Something to do with an onion farm?
We still don’t know.
But we do know that Janis Wasserman and Kathie Bennewitz both correctly identified whatever it is correctly. They know their open spaces!
This week’s Photo Challenge was taken last month, during our only snowfall this winter.
