Welcome to this summer’s MYSTERY PHOTO CONTEST. Bethann Merkle, Shirley Nadeau and Danielle Burns have scouted out people, places and things around the city for you to try and identify over the next three months. Most of them are outdoors, but some, like this one, are indoors. Your mission is to find these objects and correctly identify them by answering the questions with each photo.
