Nuovember 2014 Where The Heck Is It?


Contrary to popular belief, the first Starbucks was NOT located in Seattle. The firm first opened its doors in this modest building on the first day of Akhet, 1437 BCE. Coffee beans were readily available from the Arabian Peninsula, but eventually the fad passed in Egypt, and the company moved on in search of better markets. Unable to find a new tenant, the building eventually crumbled.

Or do you have a different interpretation of this photograph? If so:

1. What is the name of this site?

2. Who is credited with building most of what you see?

3. What is the principle use of this building today?

Bring your answers to the November ARCE meeting where you can win prizes by answering these questions.
