Where in the World (41)

Last week’s distorted city was much less challenging than Where in the World (39) which was hard enough to identify even before its was twisted into a “planet”. The steel structure is one of two iconic structures in the city’s harbour. It was relatively easy to identify the structure as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and thereby identify the city. However, some readers were misled and incorrectly identified the city as Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the UK. This is quite an easy mistake to make because…

…on 24 March 1924 the contract was awarded to English firm Dorman Long and Co Ltd, of Middlesbrough well known as the contractors who built the similar Tyne Bridge of Newcastle Upon Tyne,… (source: wikipedia.org)

Perhaps I should slip in a Newcastle-upon-Tyne “planet” at some time in the future. Meanwhile here is the undistorted view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Congratulations to those who identified the city correctly this week. Atul (@pixodentist) and Richard (@RField75) both recognised the twisted steel girders as being Sydney’s famous bridge.

This week’s “planet” is published below. It is a photograph of an iconic structure and in its undistorted format is recognised the world over.
