Here's a little light relief in the dreich days of what may feel to some of us like Flanders and Swann's "bloody January again". It's a quiz: can you guess the place and the date for the 3 summery historical photos below? (Click on them to make them bigger) There are no prizes and no penalties, so if you know, put it in the comments and impress us all, and if you don't, have a wild stab. I'll be posting the correct answers in the comments at the end of the day.
