Who? What? Where?

Who? What? Where?

a bit of historical whimsy!

Did you ever look at an old picture and wonder Who was that? Where was that?. And then of course, there are the bizarre objects from our collective past, leading to the question, What was that?

Just for the fun of it, we have collected a bunch of our old images, as well as some new images of our unusual objects, and we are going to try to puzzle you entirely!
There will be a new puzzle every two weeks, on Wednesday, and the solutions will post the following Friday, but if you want to know the answer right away, you can become a member!

This week's Puzzler…

Week 3

Who? What? Where?

This is a section of a hollowed out piece of wood that was first used in larger cities to carry an important resource into homes.

This piece was excavated in 1912 when this type was replaced with a more modern version

Make your guess below. We will show the winner's name (that's the first person to guess pretty much correctly) on the site.
If you want to know now, you have to become a member of the Society. Because Society members are special, they get to peek at the answers immediately, no waiting!
