It's the son's Christmas quiz, and parents are allowed to help - but this one's a killer.
Where's this building and what is it ? Not a good picture, but the street looks low-rise USA (or perhaps Aus/NZ) and by the shadows the picture's taken from the north, if the time on the clock is 5.40 (it's a bit blurred). It appears to be at the top of a rise, there's a small statue in front of the main clock tower, which appears to have a cross on top and also appears to close off the whole road. But the tower's main feature is the unusual top - bit like corn on the cob.
Has the air of a memorial. I'm sure I've seen the picture somewhere before, but Lord knows where.
The location begins with R. The strange top (despite the cross) made me think Rangoon, but I can't find anything like it on Google images. Tried Raleigh, Roanoke, Rostov, Riga, Rotorua, Rawalpindi, Rappahannock, Richmond. The US seems short of decent sized towns beginning with R.
Any ideas ?
