    Almost five centuries ago - an English explorer discovered this place. It took his name but more recently was renamed to reflect the local demographics and governance.

    Where is it? What is the community's name today, and what was its name previously?

    The community pictured is the capital of this territory. The community's name changed in 1987. The body of water it is shored on, retains the original name.

    Thank you AA! This is a wonderful game, very difficult to play from an old iPad1 but interesting in the way it makes one travel virtually on this beautiful BlueBall...

    Okay. I would like to know the name of this place, where it is and the date of its foundation.



    Hint. It shares part of its name with an observatory and the mountain nearby.

    I couldn't quite believe it when you posted this challenge iVan.
    My mother is from Lac Megantic, Quebec, Canada. As a child - I spent many summers there, fishing in Lac Megantic with my grandfather in the morning, and swimming in the same lake in the afternoon.
    Mount Megantic is in the background, ontop of which is the ASTROLab observatory.

    Lac Megantic is, or was, a railway town. It was founded in 1884 when Canadian Pacific Railway was completing the transcontinental rail link. My grandfather was a brakeman for the CPR and later a conductor on passenger trains.

    Bravo! What a small world! Literally!
    I'm from Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu about 150 klicks from there. Mégantic is one of my family's favorite drives.

    Well! The helm is yours again, Admiral!

    It is a picturesque drive - especially the stretch between Sherbrooke and Megantic. The roads are a bit choppy in the spring as I recall, especially around Scotstown.

    Anyway - I'm going to be mobile for a bit so the challenge is OPEN to anyone who wishes to post.

    The best part of it is leaving from the mountain, southward to the States and to follow the tiny border roads right to Lac Memphremagog, circle it from the top and go back down to the border near Owls Head and end it at Lake Champlain in Philipsburg... Can't wait till next summer!

    Where in the World has been revived. The object of the game is to guess the location where the photo was taken, along with as much extra detail as the poster of the challenge asks for. The winner is the first person to correctly solve the challenge.

    The next challenge is posted by the winner of the current challenge.

    If you are not familiar with this game, please read the first post in this thread before participating, it contains the complete explanation of how this game is played.

    Here's a challenge to start it off.

    Where was this photo taken and what is the name of the building with the two spires on top?
