    Thanks, Annie. I was sure we could rely on you! My bad! Of course I’ve been over that bridge – many a time. Perhaps the graffiti put me off. I will take more notice next time. What do you think is on the shield below the Madonna and Child? It looks a bit like a hovercraft or power-boat!


  2. Santa Croce 2042, on the Ponte del Cristo o del Tintor. Not far from campo Santa Maria Mater Domini. Cheers, Annie

    M, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark?

    Leave it to ol’ eagle-eye Yvonne to find 3 virtually identical street shrines in Venice!
    In fact, the only difference I can detect is the sizes. What an eerie coincidence!
    Well done!

    For Melissa, in case she doesn’t go back over old posts – I nearly missed her question since I rarely go back to them: I use> Venice civic number (left-hand column). Enter a sestiere and a number, et voilà! I had to try several combinations in each sestiere before I hit the right one. Knowing the highest numbers in Dorsoduro,Santa Croce and San Polo, I was able to eliminate a few alternatives. For each possibility I then checked on veniceconnected.

    M, it so is so! It’s totally so. I’m pretty sure I haven’t seen that shrine before. The photo (or two) before and after might help.


  7. Are you saying you don’t have a clue, Bert! 🙂

    Sorry, I really don’t know where that shrine is located. I trolled all through Annie’s site with no luck. Maybe I’ll come across it, next visit.

    Surely it will be easier to milk them if he gets off his bike!
    Also, I need a clue.


  9. Yes, indeed, many things of beauty in our favorite city. There were two of these street shrines on my way “home” to my apartment…at the ends of my bridges.
