Friday Foxer #14

Every Friday at 1300 hours, Tally-Ho Corner’s cleverest clogs come together to solve a ‘foxer’ handcrafted by my sadistic chum and colleague, Roman. A complete ‘defoxing’ sometimes takes several days and usually involves the little grey cells of many readers. Don’t be shy. All are welcome to participate.

To fully defox the following geofoxer, identify all twelve locations plus the theme that links them.

  1. B) Baldwin Alley, Cincinnati, OH (link to google maps)

  2. J) Race Street, Philadelphia, PA (link to google maps)

  3. L) Place Mermoz, Villers-sur-Mer, Normandy (link to google maps).
    And I’ll stop there, for the moment, since it seems a quiet afternoon.

  4. C) A shell station on N Illinois Rd, Indianapolis,-86.1592735,3a,75y,283.26h,93.32t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1svgINco3ryD6Kr6vvJpwGKw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

    Right opposite a children’s museum and some dinosaurs (not real ones)

  5. Interesting… we’ve got dinosaurs at all three locations…

  6. I) is the Drumheller Aquaplex in Alberta, Canada (apparently home to the world’s largest dinosaur – that’s its shadow in the picture!),-112.7092096,3a,75y,7.94h,97.31t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sw4GJd5CX82ORUw6P2hlUng!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

  7. A appears to be Dinopark Vyškov in the Czech Republic, unless the other Czech dinoparks have the same sign (‘časová osa’ is just ‘timeline’)

  8. D is the dinosaur museum in Dorchester – this is much easier to do backward 🙂

  9. I also forgot it was friday…

    With Dinosaurs being the theme, then one must be Crystal Palace Dinosaur Park, and indeed, it is…


  10. E looks like a preserved dig site, but with no recognisable features at all.. I’m oot!
