Ok I do ortho-photography and this is one I had saved. It is of course in black and white, but was taken probably I think in 1999 or 2000.

Here's the Hint: This is an international border between two nations

I wish the resolution were sufficient for me to see the style of the houses, the type of traffic lines in the roads, etc. It's actually very hard seeing only this. I tried guessing some places and matching up with satellite photos. No joy.

Hmmm, it's a toughie. I have scanned the US-Canada and US-Mexico borders in GoogleEarth without any luck. Maybe somewhere between an EEC nation and a non-EEC nation?

Well, it probably won't match up to googles as their data is probably older...

Oh yeah sorry. One person was close by saying it was the US and Canada crossing. In fact he just got the province wrong.

This is the official Canada Customs when rossing on the Detroit/Windsor Bridge. You just don't see the bridge (which is to the north).

The field right there is the University of Windsor Stadium.

I didn't want to make it too easy by showing the river at all. Though I figured someone familiar with it might have seen it and guessed it...

Aha! I looked at that crossing in GoogleEarth, but missed it because there isn't highres imagery at that location. 0.75 of a km away, sure they have the coverage.

Yeah that's the problem with Google Earth, those images are generally several years old. We had recent images when I still worked where I was, but they don't get updated to Google at all...
