  18. 18. Image Searching – Worked Example “Below are four pictures of steeples…. I'm quite taken with steeples, finding them fascinating, and love to take photos of them as I travel around. Which of these is the oldest steeple? Identify each steeple and give its construction date?” http://searchresearch1.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/wednesday-search-challenge-which.html © AWARE 2013 Tel: +44 20 8954 9121 • Fax: +44 20 8954 2102 • Web: www.marketing-intelligence.co.uk 18

  21. 21. Image Searching – Worked Example Finding the answers…. Go back to the question: “Which of these is the oldest steeple? Identify each steeple and give its construction date?” There is an assumption in the question that all 4 steeples are linked or connected in some way. Note how St Michael’s Church is described in the Google description: “St. Michael's Church, is one of Hamburg's five Lutheran main churches…” Look for information on the other 4 churches / search for images of <Hamburg Steeples> / <Hamburg churches> on Flickr, Google Images, etc. (Take care not to make assumption all steeples are from churches!) The 4 steeples are St Catherines (rebuilt in 1957), © AWARE 2013 The Rathaus (1897). St Nicolai (1874) Tel: +44 20 8954 9121 • Fax: +44 20 8954 2102 • Web: www.marketing-intelligence.co.uk St Michaelis (rebuilt 1952). 21
