It's Official: The Third Appleton Mystery Photo Contest Begins Now!

Below are 30 mystery images from the Appleton area (click to enlarge). How many can you identify? The one who can identify the most wins a prize: fame and glory on my Appleton Website, your choice of 3 8x10 photographs from my photo galleries plus 2 ounces of silver coins (to encourage you folks to consider silver as an incredible investment opportunity). Contestants have until May 15 to identify as many as photos as possible. Previous winners are still eligible to participate! The person who gets the most correct is the winner. If there is a tie, the person with the earliest submission wins. To participate, send me email (jeff at with the subject "Appleton Mystery Photo Contest" giving your description of where these photos were taken. You should give enough detail that a person could go there and find the scene ("west side of Appleton" is too vague, but "west side of Richmond Avenue about 1 block north of Glendale" is good).

Note: one or two of the photos might be just slightly outside the official Appleton city boundaries (e.g., in Grand Chute, Menasha, or Town of Menasha).

April 4 Update: Photo #30 is now showing. Hint: it's from an alley in the heart of Appleton. (And, after a little cropping, rotation, and color enhancement, makes a lovely 11x14 print!) One more hint: photos 7, 8, and 10 may be just slightly outside Appleton's boundaries.

You may wish to review the photos from The First Appleton Mystery Photo Contest and The Second Appleton Mystery Photo Contest.


It looks like you only have 29 of the 30 photos up. We would sure like the 30th one as we are hot on the trail of the others.
Thanks - now all 30 are there.
I don't recognize any of those pictures! I guess it has to do with the fact that I have lived north of Appleton my whole life and only went to specific areas in the city. On another note, I really like photo 16. I think it's composed very well and there's no powerlines in the picture, that's always a plus!
Who won the Mystery Photo Contest?
Sadly, nobody attempted this one - too hard, perhaps?

It's been over a year since the last photo contest. Are you ever going to run another one?
