    Somewhere in the area of Orebro?
    Pershyttan mining valley?

    Comment


      No Yves, not Örebro or Pershyttan, and you see that following Ombugge's comment, farming has been eliminated.
      Interesting you mentioned mining though...

        The top of a ventilation shaft?

          A shaft - not just ventilation.

              Amazingly it seems to be a hotel nowadays.

            Congratulations Yves! You are correct.

            Here is the view from the other side which would have had a more obvious clue (although I have seen some photos on the internet which name the wrong number King Carl!)



            My photos were taken in 2001, and from the mine's website it seems there are many more visitor facilities today, both below and above ground - including the one room actually down in the mine where it is possible to spend a night! I stayed a night in a hotel in the town, not at the hostel at the mine (I recollect that was so as to be close to the station for a train north to Dalarna the next day), but I did go on a mine tour. Although all the activities might sound a bit frenetic nowadays, it is a really beautiful in the mine surroundings and for sure some nice quiet walks in the countryside.

              Well, well! I was looking at the Sala Mine and that underground room! I couldn't find any photos like Cecilia's though, so tried other silver mines to no effect. Well done, Yves.

                Thank you Cecilia and Ivy.
                I guess this one will be solved quickly.

                        Hmmm - I think we're firmly in France - that telegraph pole seems to be saying 'Bonjour' in a particularly gallic way.

                          Carefully perusing the wording of Yves' post #4360, " ...A French one...." I think he is saying it is in France, though not the northern part.
                          On second thoughts.....umm-mmm-um!

                            Well I found a site that seemed relevant: http://queutchny1418.canalblog.com/a...eil/index.html

                            Problem is that working my way around the Departements with sea side, I still didn't find our little blue chappy.

                              Interresting site Mark.
                              In another hand don't forget that maps of French Départements can be amazing,sometimes.

                            My friends,

                            Absolutely we are in France.

                            Absolutely, on the sea side.

                            One suggestion: have a look to the soldier's neck and hand.
