The Town 100 System

You can, in addition to using the 60 places of the BLOKES system to sequentially picture the data you want to recall, find an image for each of these types of shop or location.
You might even seek 10 locations per shop type. Eg. 10 photos of banks; and, by learning them in sequence, have 100 x 10 locations to recall in sequence.
Here are some icon images I made to represent the 100 shops. You could use it as a peg loci list of 100 - but you would need to memorise them in the order listed above rather than in alphabetical order:List 1 List 2 List 3 List 4 List 5 List 6 List 7 List 8 List 9 List 10
Online, I can go to a site like Flickr where I can use its search engine to type:
It returns to me a big list of photos with at least one person in a bakery or bakery related situation. Eg. Maybe someone is holding a baguette in a kitchen.
Consider that I have a law case to remember facts about: Saloman vs Saloman. I do not have a nice visual image to imagine a story where the facts of the case occur. But remember that I have 100 'Town 100' shop themes; So I can search for a person and the name of one of the shop themes. In that way, I get a unique image.
The 'SA..' of Saloman relates to a shop theme: sandwich shop. So I can search an image archive online for sandwich person and adopt an image as the image that means 'Saloman vs Saloman' law case.
I can then imagine items in that photo that are things I need to remember; or I can imagine the person in the photo doing numbered actions:
The person doing Action 001 means that what they do the action to is fact number 1 that I want to recall.
The person doing Action 002 means that what they do the action to is fact number 2 that I want to recall.
The person doing Action 003 means that what they do the action to is fact number 3 that I want to recall.
Ah, but what if the case begins 'Stevenson vs...'? My list of 100 syllables does not have a town theme beginning 'St...'?
'St' comes between 'SO' and 'SU' alphabetically. So prefer the earlier of the two: SO: Solarium..:
Search for: shoe person
shoe shop person
Note: I had to think about SHA, SHE, SHI, SHO SHU and SI but realised that SO is the nearest syllable to precede ST.
If the image is public domain then you can even save the image to your own storage space. Otherwise, there is the risk that the photo might not persist at its online location.
