A selection of images, one from each contributor, said to have been taken on 1 January 2004. This was before Geograph was born. I have weeded out some images which were obviously not taken in January (scanning dates may have featured), and a few others which looked very unlikely to have been taken on New Year's Day, given the subject. Leaving me with 43 images, submitted between 2005 and 2015. They are sorted from (map) north to south. I have added a brief description where there was none.
