Great!

It's Selfridges at The Bullring in Birmingham.

I was going to post that first pic first, but I thought that would make it too easy.

ANyway, onwards with a question that should prove to be more easily researchable:


How many cathedrals does Coventry, in England, have?

2, I think:
St. Mary's Priory and St. Michael's (which was rebuilt after WWII).

Nope, though both of those are cathedrals

(I do want the names of the cathedrals as well, so don't bother just guessing numbers)

you son of a three headed monkey!
Coventry only has cathedrals of St. Mary and St, Micheals cathedrals! that is right it has exaclty 3 (three)! it allso seems to lack a good mathematics colledge ( LOL ).

If any of you are wondering (well solar ecalipses are allso improbable, but it happens), those are:
The Old Cathedral (circa 1350s)
Cathedral of St. Mary's (1539)
The New Coventry Cathedral (1951)
of thos one is actulay working today (guess whcih! )

EDIT: and please with L of S and C on T, don't ask us any more more stuff about your homeland at least for a few turns.

Precisely.

Three Cathedrals.

One of them very old and buried, one of them in ruins and a shiny new one.

OK, I'll lay off the England-related questions (though you seemed to do fine at it).

OK, with special thanks to a1s, I bring you your next question:

In the 1899 edition of "Who's Who", this person had 18 lines. By 1965 they had an enormous 211 lines (largest article in the book). Name the individual.

(there will be hints later)
