  • Probably the 43 arch viaduct, built in 1849 with seven million bricks. It passes through the back of the High Street, which itself was voted best high street in the UK, for its shops and many pubs and cafes/restaurants. The George and Dragon pub was the location for the meeting to build the world's first ever railway. The Town Hall in the High Street has various plaques displaying the height of the River Tees which was notoriously prone to flooding in Yarm until the recent barrage. The lower square white plaque in the middle and the higher square white plaque above the right hand door are the worst floods in 1771 and 1881. Considering the river normally is about 8 feet below the level of the High Street, and the marker for 1771 is 7 feet above the High Street, the rise in the water level was staggering.
  • I'm not sure if it's famous other than here in our state. At one time Tulsa, OK was the oil capital of the world. The Tulsa Driller was erected in honor of our cities history.
  • The 'Falkirk wheel' - the only rotating boat lift in the world. It is quite amazing actually www.thefalkirkwheel.co.uk
  • I don't know how famous it is, but this is the Sandia Tramway on the edge of Albuquerque, the longest tram in North America (about 2 miles). It goes from the base of the Sandia Mountains to the crest at 10,600 feet above sea level, over craggy canyons and providing breathtaking vistas as well as the occasional glimpse of mountain goats, bears and eagles. I hope I uploaded properly - I don't do it very often!
  • I live in Guatemala City. There are several, but I guess one of the most unusual would be a Relief map of the whole country, possibly one of the largest of its kind in the world. http://www.ticotimes.net/archive/03_15_02_8.htm
  • It's not actually a land mark, but my town is most famous for being the birthplace of the co-operative movement. This is a photo of the Pioneers museum. More interestingly though, the white building next to it is my favourite pub : D Adolf Hitler apparently wanted to take our Townhall and rebuild it, brick for brick, in Germany. I'm not sure why, but he never got it anyway. Here it is.
  • My town? Well, Joseph Smith stayed here for awhile. A town near here is famous as the Carousel capital. And another town is famous as the home of Elmer's Glue.

They've been replaced with modern lighting now, but the Lower and Pharos lighthouses both still work.

  • Yup, the smelter. This little town in SE BC, Canada has a really bad rep. Everything in and around the town is supposed to be contaminated with lead. But since science now knows about such things as leaching/contamination/environmental protection, the company REALLY cleaned up it's act. (Like lots of other polluters who didn't know any better at the time). The children regularly get tested for the various contaminants that might come from the smelter and their results are lower than the national average. I consider this little town to be a jewel! It is very green all summer, the residents take a lot of pride in their homes. Most of the yards have fabulous flower and vegetable gardens. And the area as a whole is very clean and very beautiful.
