LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY, “Sad piano‘ by photographer Ruta Smith, showed an outside piano near White Key Studios on Ashley River Road in West Ashley. Mystery sleuth Allan Peel of San Antonio, Texas, the first correct guesser, told us the business offers a music school and recording school opened in August 2017 by recording artist and former restaurateur Ryan White to create “a musical community unlike anything Charleston has seen before.”

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.

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!
