Week 46 Clues and Solutions
Dot is thrilled that the gift was found so early, on Tuesday, by @Kevied. It was tucked into the wooden garden edging beside Spotswood Station. (We’ve got the wakies and thought we might as well post this now)
Clue 1: Seventeen years since the last Koala Koala Siding sent sand to the Spotswood Glassworks – the last train left in 1998.
The Standard Useless Gift Location Clue.
Walk this way – Aerosmith. There’s a crossing sign just near
Clue 4: Originally wore a tie. Original name was Spottiswoode – the extra letters spell Tie
Clue 5: Closer to the water than the other one. The railway station at one point was called “Bayswater”. Bayswater in Melbourne is a long way from the Bay.
We understand that many of you worked out the location from the phone number.
Clue 8: Hannibal tangles with a nest of moccasins. “Spotswood”, the movie, starred Anthony Hopkins who had just completed “Silence of the Lambs”. “Spotswood” is about a moccasin factory.
At this point the gift was found.
Clue 9: Origin of the famous breastplate The breastplate of Ned Kelly’s armour was originally part of a plough made by Lennon’s Agricultural Implement Works, which stood next to the local pub.
Clue 10: Spotswood from “Team America – World Police”
Clue 13: Wigand, Muriel, Brian and Hegpep put their foot in it. Spotswood starred Russell Crowe, Toni Collette, Bruno Lawrence and Ben Mendelsohn, and those are four of their other roles.
Road Safety Video – the gift is near the pedestrian crossing. Also, Dot wants you to keep safe.
Next week it’s the CBD once more. Good luck with your search.
