The last picture is still up for grabs.
It is a very well known and iconic place for anyone that is into maritime history.

That is St John's Newfoundland looking down from around Deadman's Pond.

Here's a second picture of the one still up for grabs to make it easier.

Right on.........good guess.......I copied it from a panoramic photo I have, which is 10" x 60", that I purchased while stationed there....the photo was taken from Signal Hill and encompasses almost 360 degrees, from the harbor entrance around to Pepperrell AF Base on the Boulevard.....here's a photo from the website that shows this view as it now is...the second photo has "Cabot Tower" in the foreground and, of course, is where Marconi sent the first WIRELESS to England.......
