This Construction Project Ends With a Big Bang!

It’s Christmas in July! Well, not exactly. It’s July and we’re bringing you a photo from Christmas 2018 to cool your sweating brow in the midst of the hottest time of the year for servicing restrooms.

This Satellite | PolyPortables Global unit is set up with a tidy office trailer in an urban riverfront park noted for its holiday light displays. You can’t see it, but behind the photographer are construction barricades surrounding a very big building that is part of a complex of sporting venues. Though the arena being blocked off is only 30 years old, it was being laced with explosives at the time this photo was taken. And boom! The roof was imploded shortly after the photo was taken, and the building is no more.

Here are a few more clues to help you identify the location of the restroom:

  • This Great Lakes city is known for Gemütlichkeit, which should come in handy when it hosts a major political convention in 2020.
  • A few popular 1970s sitcom TV shows were set in this city, and a bronze statue of one of the popular TV show characters was erected near this park.
  • This is the birthplace of the editor of Portable Restroom Operator magazine.
  • When the construction workers take a lunch break in their trailer, they might just play a few hands of Sheepshead.
  • You’ll find many Germans here, but the park shown is named for a French missionary.

To win the contest, be the first person to respond with the name of the city, the park being shown in the background and the intersection where the restroom is located. The winner will receive a PRO T-shirt and recognition as a geographical whiz. Send your responses to me at The winner will be announced at and through the PRO Facebook page.
