    Yay my first!

    My camera phone had trouble focusing in the rain so this was the best that came out.

    Am I supposed to be adding the last tag to Google Maps? I couldnt figure out how to do that.

    Heres my new one (Its an old abandoned hospital in South Philly, should be easy to find if you've been in the area long enough):

    Wow, talk about a small world. I actually worked there in 1986-1987. Southern Division of AEMC, right?

    *Shrugs* I actually dont know much about that hospital other than what Ive heard from people that have grew up in the area and have been to it in its heyday plus what Ive been able to Google about it. Its right near my apartment though so its always intrigued me. Really wish I could go inside and see what it looks like but they do a good job with making sure it stays boarded up.

    THIS IS NOT THE NEW TAG!!!
    THIS IS A RETAG.
    Scroll down the posts for the new tag.


    I was surprised when I checked the map that this spot hasn't been tagged.
    This could be a unique tag and the judges may consider making this a special.
    The business will occupy this location only a few more days.
    If this tag with the identifying banner is not grabbed by Friday it may no longer be available.
    If this is the case the judges will need to decide to accept a grab photo at this location or at the new location of the business.
    If somehow I missed it and this has been tagged before I have an alternate.

    It might not show on the map, but I think it's been tagged in the past.
    I could be wrong.

    I searched this thread for the name of the business and found no tag shots.
    I will wait for confirmation it's been tagged previously.
    If so I have another tag ready.

    OK folks, sorry for the retag of Revzilla. I checked both maps on Page 1 and did not see it.

    Introducing the New Tag:

    A clue at the top of this photo. Zoom in and you should be able to read it.

    Be sure to stop in and say Hi if the front door is unlocked.
    It's pretty interesting inside:

    So you want me to give away the location????

    I'll give you this:

    The sign over the door reads Liberty Vintage.

    Google it and you can figure out the rest.

    We have quite a vintage motorcycle culture in Philly.

    I was within blocks of this last week trying to troubleshoot a cdi last week. I guess I should keep this thread in mind. Updating the map wouldnt be bad either. Seems there is alot that needs updating
