OK, this one has timed out I feel. Would anyone like to suggest a new object for us to find?

Objection! Are either of these people pedestrians? I believe a pedestrian has to be moving. Definition of pedestrian: noun: a person walking rather than travelling in a vehicle. Oxford Dictionary definition.

I would describe them as being frozen in time (because that essentially is what a photo does freezes time the guy outside the shop i expect was just about to move into it to rob it!)

OK, so I take it the Ford Cortina is a non-starter?

Can we have something that we can actually FIND with not too much effort or thinking please? I searched just about every old Ford car dealer's address, and the closest I got was a mark 1 Capri!

Since I found a previous time-out, I'll ask you to search for a blue tram.
