Hi all
I saw this photograph captioned “ Algarve Albufeira”. There is no date information on the file but you could guess maybe late seventies or early eighties based on the car and clothing of the pedestrians.
Anyway..the more I look at the photograph the more I’m convinced that I know the location but just can’t place it. It’s starting to do my nut in so perhaps someone on the forum knows or has an idea of where the photo was taken in Albufeira.

I think it's an incomplete Instagram link.

But the hashtag

#flicp


contains nothing as described and a search finds nothing.

Could original poster please check and correct.

Hi
Sorry about this...it’s a Flickr link.
I’ll have a look at the FAQs on the forum and see if there another way to post the picture.
If anyone has any pointers in how to post photos then that would be appreciated.

Try this website, it is very user friendly, and I think it’s the third one up from the bottom, link for forum, that you want.

Thanks all
I was trying Postimage but I’ll try again with the option you suggest.
Just to check ..is that option Forums Hotlink ?
And if so do you just paste it in to the body of the post ?

Date Posted: 03/October/2019 at 17:47
Yes, it's the method I use. Once the picture is uploaded and saved, copy the link Hotlink for Forums, which will begin with [url] and paste it in to the body of your post. Then hit post reply.

Ah. I saw that photo years ago and went to see it modern day. It has been altered considerably but there are still architectural features that tie it into that pic.
All my pics of it are on my UK ‘puter and I can’t access those from here. I will dig them out and post though next time I’m back.

This is it. Just a cut and paste error, Snr Spalding! I think those weeds are still there.

Thanks Pete, Andrew and Cubsur..Hotel do Cerro ? I’ve not only walked by loads of times ..I’ve also been in the building.
I would never have called that as the location.
I’ve found a couple of other interesting photos of Albufeira (I think) back in the day so now I’ve an idea of the posting format I’ll try to post them.

So Pete, Cubsur just to check before I have another go.
Image on Postimage
Hotlink for Forums...copy link
Paste into post
Edit link to same format as Pete’s post earlier ie remove all the extra stuff.
Because when I copy and paste the link it looks like this

https://posts.org/ - https://i.postimg.cc/L65q7mkg/4-DE6-C27-F-FD1-C-4615-8-ADA-37290033-A066.jpg

Edited as above it would look like this

https://i.postimg.cc/L65q7mkg/4-DE6-C27-F-FD1-C-4615-8-ADA-37290033-A066.jpg

DON'T remove the 'extra stuff'.

When you copy the 'hotlink for forum' link it will look like this

https://postimages.org/" rel="nofollow">

Paste that complete into your post. CTRL + V is the neatest way.

The forum website code will strip off what it doesn't need in order to show the image, which is what I have done with this screenshot.

Tom , the forum doesn’t strip off the unwanted, hence I often post a pic and it sneaks a link in, to a bank, a cash point, a garage etc.
I go back to edit post and take the extra link they’ve snuck in off the end and update. Hey presto.

??? never happens to me.

Anyway, Bob sent a picture of Hotel do Cerro taken Monday from the same angle which I have stitched to the original. Quite a bit different, isn't it? And the weeds have gone. Click image to see it full size.

Good work guys, that’s like the pic I was going to post and when I mentioned features thar could still be recognised, look at the two orange circular turret like features, and the windows along the pavement to the right.
