    I was going to take a wild guess and say Bonds flat, but if it’s not British I’ll put some more work into it.

    You better. It's closer to you than you'd think.

    Trying to decipher the statue/words on the signs as we speak! Taking your clue to mean it's on my side of the Atlantic... but not looking exclusively there.

    As Nick is from Vancouver, I guess that courtyard may be in the US or Canada. Let's see, which continuation novel plays there?

    My thought was that it's actually from Fleming, which narrows it down to a few American possibilities. Not excluding anything at this point though.

    I won't comment until you post a concrete place that you think it is.

    EDIT: And since we're about nine time zones apart, unless I'm mistaken, this may take until tomorrow morning our time, which is now about a quarter past nine p.m.

    It's not a continuation novel, oh Striped One. PS: Not saying that you are wrong regarding US or Canada.

    Hell, where are the Canadians when we might need them...? :-)

    École des Ursulines, Quebec, where Viv from TSWLM was first sent to be educated by her Aunt.

    Overall I'd say I did a poor job of keeping the Canadian end up. :))

    OK, you'll get by with a little help from your friends ;-). Your turn, anyway!

    Sorry all, I’m taking a break from the forum for awhile again, but this game was a great source of information from some really smart Bond fans; if someone else wants to take my turn to keep things going, please do!

    You'll be missed @NickTwentyTwo but I hope you have a lovely break and thank you for creating this game it's provided a lot of entertainment and knowledge as the nights have drawn in.

    To keep things rolling, I'll take over. Here's a Fleming location.

    This is the ice rink at Rockefeller Center. To quote myself from Nov. 8, re your 1200 Avenue of the Americas picture:
    ...Rockefeller Center -> one of Bond's first kills in Casino Royale-the-novel ("‘Well, in the last few years I’ve killed two villains. The first was in New York — a Japanese cipher expert cracking our codes on the thirtysixth floor of the RCA building in the Rockefeller centre, where the Japs had their consulate.") ->or even William Stephenson, codename "Intrepid", a possible model for Fleming's Bond.

    It's a very popular spot, and I couldn't pick Central Park Zoo because doesn't even have a Reptile House! ;)

    Over to you, J.W

    I know...I also tried to find something to represent Central Park Zoo but found most of it too obvious, in the absence of a reptile house :-).

    I'll be back with a new one shortly.

    All right, here it is. It is a movie location. I'm certain some specialist will find it quickly.

    Surprised that nobody had an idea for about four hours, but still going to bed.

    Probably way off here, but Univex HQ, 'Prague', CR PTS, which is actually somewhere in London, right?

    Sorry, but I only read the last three postings right now. It is indeed the Festspielhaus at Bregenz. Your turn, @goldenswissroyale.

    Film loction. If it is too hard, I will give you clues or other pictures. I hope it is okay that it isn't a building?

    Fine for me for the time being...but it seems a bit unusual. May get back on this, but please leave it like this for the moment. Time to go to bed for me right now.

    No, nothing from SP. Thanks for guessing.

    The Millbrook Proving Ground where they filmed the Aston Martin barrel roll in CR?

    That's what I thought too. Unless it's wrong.

    Good guess. Nothing from CR.
