What's That? #6: The answers

A quiet week, no winner.

I'm not sure if it's that it got tougher or the light holiday traffic, but no one guessed any of the What's That? images from Sunday's game.

Here are the photo clues from this week's contest with a more inclusive picture below each one. The locales are: The fountain at Theodore Roosevelt Island, entrance to the Center Building at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, and The U.S. Department of Agriculture building in DC (notice the corn plant tops on the columns).

You can see the comments from What's That #6 here.

Hmm - how many people have been to St. Elizabeth's Hospital?!

You know how crossword puzzles often have a theme? Why not try that here, and have all three pix with something in common, whether or not you specify that theme. So, if someone guesses two of them, and sees they're both from presidential memorials, it's an additional clue for the third.

Potential themes could be libraries or stores, or general locations like Arlington or the Federal Triangle. We need more clues!

I think michael's idea is a great idea. I think you'll find a happy medium after a while.

In all fairness, there are at least 20 buildings in DC with Corinthian columns and the word States in it...

Good idea, Michael.

Neil: I don't know of any other buildings that depict corn plants at the top of the columns. ;)

I believe you... but I can't see that, to be honest.

When I visited the TR memorial on the island, I was reminded of the communist statue park I visited in Budapest.

Not that TR's ideals or ideas were communist, but that the statue poses and presentation were similar.

The pose in the photo was almost the same as "Lenin welcoming the workers", a statue formerly installed outside a factory in Budapest.

Zoomed in -- so NOT seeing the corn plants. But otherwise, very clever choices this week!
