It's become a tradition that at the annual NLCA Christmas Social Henry Bruce organises a photo quiz to test people's knowledge of the North Laine area.

12 photos

This is his quiz for December 2014. There are 12 photos and for each one you have to both answer the question and say in which street the photo was taken (so 2 possible points for each photo). At the December Social nobody got the full 24 points - the highest score was 17 and the person who achieved that won the prize of a bottle of champagne. See if you can beat this score! You can check your answers here but it's too late now to win a prize, so it's just for fun.

Answers and credits

All photos are of course by Henry Bruce.
