Where in the World is TravelGumbo (#65)



Gumbo was ridden out of town (or at least Western Canada) by PortMoresby and by Roderick Simpson, who recognized the rail bridge at Lethridge, Alberta. So Gumbo's taken himself to other places, and now finds himself contemplating the contrast of light and decor, of nature and invention, of the security of knowing where he is...but where is that? Indeed, Where in the World is TravelGumbo?

The painted figures appear to me to be in the style of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, second half of the 19th century, England.  The movement also influenced the later Arts & Crafts movement up to the early 20th C.  So I'm guessing it isn't a very old building, maybe 100-150 years old (if I'm right about the decoration).  


The (mostly) place names between the figures seem to be the English versions with just "America" mentioned, of the ones I can make out, in the western hemisphere.  So I suspect it isn't in the US.
