This mysterious rooftop figure surely is not Santa, but he certainly looks like an entertainer. What and where is it? We’ll forward some City Paper swag to the 7th person who correctly answers the question 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.

LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY, “Black-eyed Susans,” showed flowers painted on a fence outside the Pour House in James Island. Few people correctly guessed the location, so the swag goes to John Sponseller of Charleston.

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!
