Solo Foxer #95

Unlike the formidable Friday foxers, the Monday kind are designed with lone truth sleuths in mind. While Roman, my Chief Foxer Setter, would be very interested to know how long it takes you to defox today’s brainteaser, he requests that the comments section isn’t used to share solutions or drop hints.

“Where am I?”

Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View (all Solo Foxer solutions are Street Viewable), MAPfrappe, and other online tools, work out my location. The answer will appear under next Monday’s solo foxer.

Today you’ll find me in a city of less than 20,000 people. I’m standing on a street named after a famous WWI general. The street has no road markings and runs parallel to three others named after notable WWI commanders. All four streets intersect with a road bearing the name of Nobel Peace Prize winner. Within a seven mile radius of my location there’s an eight-engined bomber, the site of a terrible rail accident, and the remains of a historic schooner. Two miles from a sizeable swing bridge, I’m equilatitudinous with an island that gave its name to a firearm. The nearest foreign country has a key on its coat of arms. The country I’m in produces more wine than South Africa, more motor vehicles than Spain, and more gold than Mexico.

You’re probably in the right place if you can see…

  • A heron
  • An owl
  • Two lions
  • A swing seat
  • A crossroads
  • A diamond-shaped window
  • A pentecostal church
  • A man in an electric wheelchair spraying weeds

I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.

(Last week I was here)


  1. Diamond-shaped window ahoy!

    This was quite an interesting one! Probably about an hour all told. I’m really loving the way different foxers present a challenge in different ways (i.e. getting to the right country/general area versus finding the exact right spot).
