That was fun. 🙂
I got most of them right, but I’d forgotten that Waite was born in NY. And I missed No. 7 – not that the image isn’t burned into my brain, but I don’t personally consider someone standing on a roof to be “inside.”. I still enjoyed it, though, and I hope to see more quizzes.

Enjoyed this, I too had to guess on the 2 of wands as I see him on the parapet but he is within the confines of the building! Hope there will be more quizzes in the future. Thank you

We'd love to hear from you!
