Indeed. Variety is the spice of life and all that . . .

Bet nobody can identify where it is, being such a tiny picture.

Absolutely!

Obviously both of you can see more detail in that little picture than my screen/eyes can. My mother always told me I shouldn't gamble.

My inaccuracy is probably down to never having been in any of these boxes. :(

...also eyesight not that good - I only based the guess on four easy-to-see items, or five if you include the signalman. :wink:

Stuart does have the advantage that he has seen most of my photographic collection. But I assume you both identified the GC-pattern frame which I thought was indiscernable.

No good going by the block instruments - they got stolen so often you never knew what to expect to find there!

No - I couldn't make out the style of frame. The block instrument did eliminate a few possibilities.
