LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY , “Blue shutters,” stumped a lot of people, but those who recognized them knew the window coverings to be on a house at 40 Tradd Street. Justin Kaldenback of Hanahan told us that the brick masonry house, built around 1718, is one of 71 pre-Revolutionary houses in Charleston. “Sun-filled rooms open up to a brick walled courtyard,” he wrote. “Upstairs, the rooms look out to Charleston gardens, rooftops and church steeple.”

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!
