LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY, “Colorful sign”, is a mural by Alexandria Searles/Morowa Mosai on the side of Edmund’s Oast on Morrison Drive. Hats off to the longtime mystery detective George Graf of Palmyra, Virginia, for being the fifth person to identify the location of the photo. George has always been a correct guesser of mystery photos at City Paper and our sister publication, Statehouse Report.
Every Monday the city paper features a mystery photo taken somewhere in the Lowcountry. We encourage you to guess — and be sure to share your name and city in which you live. We will uncover the mystery the following week and, from time to time, offer a prize.
