Here’s a sad looking outdoor piano that photographer Ruta Smith spied recently somewhere in the Charleston area. Where is it? Do you know if it still works? To enter (one entry per person), send your guess, name and hometown in an email to: mystery@charlestoncitypaper.com.

LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY, “Marsh with view,” shows a view of Ashley River Baptist Church on Savannah Highway from the perspective of the West Ashley Greenway. More than 40 people guessed, but the swag goes to Adam Russell of Charleston. Congrats to all correct guessers!

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 small 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!
