Last week’s contest was won by Poster Child. It was Mercer Island.

This week’s contest is related to something in the news from January, good luck!

1. Geoduck spews:

It’s the apartment house in a suburb of Stockholm that got rammed by a commuter train after a cleaning lady on board somehow accidentally started the thing. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find an angled shot, so the link goes to the overhead view on Yahoo.

2. Geoduck spews:

Duh, right, Bing Maps. Here’s the angled view.

3. Liberal Scientist is a Dirty Fucking Socialist Hippie spews:

Bystrom said the woman was arrested on suspicion of endangering the public.

Good win! I had fun looking for this one. Never found the address in any of the news articles, but saw one view near water and looked for where there was water near train tracks.

5. Geoduck spews:

One of the news articles I scouted listed the suburb as something like “Saltsj√∂baden”, and when I finally got a spelling the map page liked, I found it pretty fast.

I’m coming late but coulda guessed it was Stockholm from all the Volvos in the parking lot.
