I believe the last clue may have the incorrect article year. Please check. Thank you.
You are right, that is fixed! Thank you!
Thank you. I spent about 1/2 an hour on this Friday before I gave up.
Does anyone know where "Relief Park" was? (not a clue, just a side quest)
That is a good question! It looks like there is some history of Relief Park in Patti F. Smith's Vanishing Ann Arbor https://aadl.org/catalog/record/10432023, which mentions Relief Park was on Madison St. According to a 1917 city directory, this park was at "ss Madison W, s end 5th".
Where do you make the format 'photos'? I am having trouble with it.
If you're on a big screen, the search bar across the top of the page has search: and then a for: drop down which is what you should set to photos. If you're on a small screen, you'll see "All formats" under the search field when you tap in the search field to enter your search terms. Does that help? Be sure to choose "Community Collections" first from the search dropdown to have Photos in the format dropdown.
I'm stuck on the 3rd clue. I found the 3 digit number and the 2 letters and looked in collections but I can't come up with anything.
Once you have the correct search term, your code is in the third result, a newspaper article from 1997! Make sure you search your term without any spaces: "###xx". Hopefully this helps!
