This was so difficult to choose! There were so many lovely entries. I may have added a few more locations to my bucket list... Thanks to everyone who played along!

Thanks very much for picking one of mine. Some great photos in that selection. It’s going to be hard to choose.

Thank you for including my (stuffed) polar bear. This has been a really fun challenge. Interesting to see so many places.

edit: Finally looked up Iphofen because of the runaway voting 😁.

Geräthengasse (Google Maps) or Gerätengasse (city map):

and here on Alamy (961 in total - and I had never heard of it) at least 2 with a glimpse of the same street.

If I ever come near it again (-passed it by train), I have to visit the Knauf gypsum plaster cast museum. (youtube videos).

Looking at the cars, it was probably taken quite a while ago.

Thanks for including one of mine! Always encouraging to make the cut, but also pleased to see that the task of organising the next round is going elsewhere.......

I enjoyed it LOL. It was not as hard as I expected--the set-up and posting, at least. Deciding on a topic and the finalists was harder!

Thank you! I've been waiting for an official announcement that voting has closed, but the OP seems to have gone AWOL. If no-one has any objection, I'll set a new topic later today.

Ahhh, good! I’ve been checking every day for the announcement. And a hearty congratulations to you for a great image that captures life in a small town. It’s perfect.

I am so, so sorry! I have been away visiting family (first time since COVID) and this just fell off my radar. Congrats on your win, Alan!
