Kenspeckle is an adjective that means easily recognizable.

The exact origin of kenspeckle is uncertain, but the word appears to have Scandinavian roots, perhaps through the Old Norse words ‘Kenna’ which means ‘to know or perceive’ and spak which means ‘wisdom.’

I could still identify the old football stadium after twenty-five years. There was something kenspeckle about those rusted old benches.
