EDIT -- Om beat me to it! :smile:

YEARS of practice, until we decided to ban their use. It wasn't a game anymore when the search engines got too good.

The last one is the Colony hotel in Maine

It had been used by Turbo1 in one of the first pages of the now lost part I of the landmarkgame in 2008-something.

Thanks! I assumed I was going to die before I figured that one out.
Now that I've checked, it shows up in neither Google nor Tineye, and there don't appear to be any other reverse image search engines left.

Sad. Sometimes I use old threads as reference material. Guessing that one was a memory hog, and had probably hundreds of broken image URL's.
