I agree the building looks French but Paris seems too obvious so I'm going to leave France and guess Geneva with the clocks and all, and either a bank or train station.

Another view from the same city, seen from a fairly well-known landmark.

As for the function of the building -- What "good" thing is Mussolini sometimes (falsely) credited with?

Dan, I'm curious how you blur out names? I make a big mess with Paint and 3D Paint totally confuses me. As far as the location in your latest pictures - I don't know.

I guess I'm being too cryptic here. Trains need to run on time... sculpture with a bunch of clocks... the building is... a train station!

But I'm not going to let you folks off the hook so easily on the city. I hope the this latest photo does the trick.

Fred, I use paint.net for the blurring -- https://www.getpaint.net/
It's pretty easy -- from the Toolbar, choose Rectangle Select (or one of the other Selects). Then in the Effects menu, choose Blurs. Another nice feature -- when you save the file, you can set the image quality, which then controls the file size. For all these pictures I saved them at a quality of 25 (out of 100). The files end up maybe 5 times smaller than the original, and the quality is good enough for what we're doing here. I have not downloaded the latest version, so it's possible they've changed things a little.

Dan cheers

Well, the Musee d'Arcy (or something like this spelling - pardon my French) is in a former train station in Paris? Thanks for the suggestion re: Paint.net - it looks good.

We have a winner! Paris indeed. Fran, you should have gone with the obvious.

The train station is the Gare Saint-Lazare. Here's a link to the street view.

Yes Fred, the museum is the Musee d'Orsay (link).

The sunset photo was taken from the Eiffel Tower. I thought someone might recognize the building in the foreground. In the distance you can make out the Grand Arche (link) among the buildings.

And of course the church is the Sacre Coeur, in Montmarte.

Dan cheers

I thought it was the Musee d'Orsay earlier, but I was thinking the answer was a city in Italy given the Mussolini clue. Montmartre put it back in Paris. OK, here is one of the few pictures I have left.

I thought it might be Great Abaco (post-Dorian), but the vegation looks too lush to have recovered that qyickly, so how about Florida Keys?

BaardJ, you are definitely on the right course and this is my last picture which I believe offers a clue as to "which one". I mean the name of the largest key closest to here - not the tiny island with the wrecks.

Ah ha! Got it now, which means my original guess was totally wrong. And since I still don't have a picture, will defer, as I figure BaardJ will get it now.

I don't want to start guessing every island in the BVI, but to narrow it down a bit, is it somewhere in North Sound?

This picture is remnants of one of the buildings blown apart at Fishers Cove on Virgin Gorda ...that visit was a surreal experience. Local friends described the aftermath of Irma like hell on earth. It was like an atomic bomb went off . Not a leaf left on any tree .....here are a few more from that very sad trip ...imagine ships ashore on the rocks and sailboats laid to rest on white sand beaches ?.it was all mind blowing
You can see that one of them is blondie starting the rebuild of hog heaven...

Such a tremendously sad time... The BVI and St. Maarten/St. Martin have had a really horrible set of circumstances, with Irma, and then Covid...

Kim, thanks for the "reminder" pictures of the destruction of the BVI's. I guess since you disclosed the location, you get to post a new picture for us to guess.
