We need a lot more of those flash mobs Mick to put smile back on the faces in this miserable world.

Zinc is fairly common or garden, surely someone has some Galvanised something or other lying around sheds/garages to bring forward with a photo.

Zirconium be creative...
While Chez falcon is no metalworking , or d.i.y treasure trove, just bothering to look has come up with these items of largely indeterminate zinc quantity. A couple of galvanised items. Firstly a scrap bit of galvanised sheet which was once 8ft/4ft from Stan Dawsons Yard at Prudhoe, and secondly probably the most beautifully composed photograph of a single galvanised roofing nail on the world wide web.

The third is a Brass Cannon turned by the juvenile Falcon's own fair hand. Being brass probably consists of around one third Zinc/two thirds Copper. Everyone surely has a piece of brass in the home.

Yes we are in the "Z" s so this should be easy. Think Movie with Z as the surname of the main protagonist!

and particularly easy for Mick as in December 2021 he provided the answer.

What Movie is this Dam from :?: ... (and where is the dam itself :?: )
