is a new photo sharing site with a twist - the
pictures that it shows are ones that the poster needs help in identifying. It has yet to formally launch, but does have
a number of pictures already. However, on the evidence of existing uploads, many of the images are simply too small to be
A search for mill
currently shows 3 images, all of
windmills. Two images are really too poor to make for easy identification. The third image is tentatively identified as being
Rayleigh windmill, Essex - which is easily confirmed, though I don't know for what period the tower had a crenellated top in
order to date the image.
I've been reminded that Rayleigh windmill had crenellations through till 1974, when a new cap was put back on. The photo is
obviously much older than that - but the other extreme of dating is 1906, when the mill stopped working by wind, and it appears
the cap was removed soon afterwards.
