    the cherub's fingers are exactly in the same position in the fandango book as they appear in a history book of the island that I got at the library. Those frogs are the base of the statue on which the cherub is dancing.I'm sitting here at my kitchen table looking at it right now. The fireplace is also in the background of the cherub photo in this history book, the fireplace is not exact but close. There's also a photo of that bell in this history book, but I believe that former estate is in a different part of town.

    Sean,

    Thanks for the additional information.

    I'm guessing that the author used that fact, to encode some information into the picture. He obviously did his homework.

    I hope to make it to MDI at some point in the future. Looks like a great place.

    I don't think the cherub is forming the number "2" with the right hand.

    Sean - can you reveal what estate the cherub was from?

    There is a photograph of what very well might be our fireplace here:

    Unfortunately, I don't see a cherub in the picture, nor do I see any details on the website about where the photograph was taken. However, it was pleasing to see something recognisable!

    Some websites suggest that several cottages left nothing but their chimneys; I've no evidence that the image shown in the link above is the one that is illustrated in Fandango!

    The burned cottage in the that image seems to have the Sieur de Monts Spring House in the background.

    Edit: And as a side note, the following figure show the area affected by the fire.

    Default Fire

    So. perhaps we can narrow the location of the key to within the fire areas. Just a hunch.
    And also along one of the carriage roads within this fire area.

    On another note..I have found conflicting pictures of the Jordan Pond Gate and the
    Brown Gate..Which one has the small circle window on the left side? Sean..can you help
    with this?

    Thanks
    Trainor

    Default Brown Gate House

    I'm definite, it's the Brown Gate House. I walk that carriage road a lot. Sean98

    I have a scanned image of the cherub that might be of general interest, but I don't know the source of the image. I suspect it's from a book or newspaper, if I had to guess. I'd like to share it, but I don't know the copyright situation. Does Tweleve have any guidelines for this sort of thing?
