Another reminder of Wanstead?

Nice for Wanstead’s Amy Carnelley to be reminded of home while in New Zealand – and funny that it’s in exactly the same way that @jameslongy1 noticed the same thing earlier this year, albeit in a different bit of New Zealand.

Anyone who missed it then would have missed the tale of the charming Essex Engineering and Coin-Op Controls Ltd, Manufacturers of Coin-operated Control Mechanisms, based on Nelson Road, just near The Duke.

Makes you wonder where else in the world Wanstead’s coin-op mechanisms ended up. Also makes you wonder simply where the readers of this site are coming from.

We know from looking at our logs, that while so far this year there have been 58,000 visits to this website from people in the UK, there have been the following visits from elsewhere..

USA 983
Australia 336
Spain 270
Kenya 215
Ireland 133
France 117
India 111
South Africa 105
New Zealand 98
Japan 33
Brazil 19
Barbados 6
Iran 1

So if you’re outside the UK, let’s have a photo of where you are right now… Send to
