Here’s a classic building that should be easy pickings for City Paper readers with a penchant for sleuthing and history. Where is it and what’s its importance? We’ll forward some City Paper swag to the 15th person who correctly answers the questions and identifies this week’s mystery photo. To enter (one entry per person), send your guess, name and hometown in an email to: mystery@charlestoncitypaper.com.

Photo provided.

LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY, “Patriotic scene,” shows a bunch of American flags surrounding a Blue Star Memorial marker near the U.S. Coast Guard station at the corner of Tradd Street and Murray Boulevard in Charleston. Hats off to Mount Pleasant native Matthew Scoggins, now of Greenville, for successfully identifying the location of the photo. Thanks also to Charleston businessman John Rivers for the photo.

Every Monday, the City Paper offers a mystery photo taken somewhere in the Lowcountry. We encourage you to guess — and make sure to share your name and the town in which you live. We’ll uncover the mystery the following week and, every now and then, give a prize.

BONUS: If you want to submit a mystery photo taken by you for us to share, send it to our mystery email address. Make sure to put “Submission” in the subject line.

PAST MYSTERIES: While the guessing time on these mysteries is over, you might like seeing some old mystery photos that readers have puzzled over. Enjoy!
