Merry Guessing Game

guess-the-building

Can anybody guess what this building is for?

If someone else has already correctly guessed before you arrive, you can still share with us what you were going to say. The more the merrier!

  1. It looks like a shuttered carousel … brrrr!!!

  2. lavenderbay says:

    You got it, James! the carousel was built in 1919, and has been residing in Guelph, Ontario, since 1970. Not open again till Victoria Day weekend; reserve your hotel room now!

    I guessed a Merry-Go-Round! It is huge!
    Your title would have given it away but I was thinking Merry Christmas instead of merry-go-round. 🙂

  4. lavenderbay says:

    Good for you, Gina!
    Yes, I was being sneaky with the title. The final word, too, is “merrier”.

    It looks a little like the round house in the Thomas the Tank Engine movies.

  6. lavenderbay says:

    A round house makes more sense than a garage, Almostgotit, in which case Thomas and his friends would have to be shaped like cheese wedges.

    I think it is an enormous dovecote depsite the fact that James already got it. The little birds fly into the top and the enormous giant ones that come out when we are all asleep go in the bottom doors!

  8. lavenderbay says:

    That’s brilliant, Alyson! You belong on acreage with such good farming instincts. Could you build one of those things in miniature for my carrots? They never come out of the garden much bigger than they went in.

  9. Shelley says:

    Well I would have been wrong – I was thinking a picnic shelter 😦

    Oh well, still batting .500!

  10. lavenderbay says:

    Shelley, I would probably have guessed the same as you (and those doors would certainly keep picnic tables from jumping in the river! ) I actually had no idea what it was. I just liked the look of it with the diffused sun directly behind it. After taking the photo, I walked past the other side of the building, where there was a little sign stating what it was. So keep 🙂 ing!
