Last week's mystery-mystery picture [Oct. 27] was solved by Virginia Slutter, among other readers. She said, "The picture is of the Muir clothing store down near the Commander oil tanks. The building used to be the old Layton boat shop. The owner of Muir's is the daughter of the lady who owns the children's shop, Brigid's on Audrey Avenue." Ms. Slutter said she recognized the photo because she likes to walk in that area early in the morning.
Penny Hoyt said of last week's mystery-mystery picture, "I can't believe no one called about the picture. That is Muir's store. Muir, the wonderful store off the beaten track, but an absolutely delightful store. Everyone should visit it, so let everyone know that it is at the end of South Street."
Leslie Collins called to say she too knows the mystery-mystery picture. "I do know the Muir shop. It is where that wonderful sculptress, still in the local area, who did wonderful unusual wooden driftwood items was located. I don't know the story of the bikes, but I'm a set nurse for TV and film - a baby wrangler. I always wanted to call to solve the picture," she said.
FYI: Muir, the shopowner, rents the bicycles to boaters coming from the town marina during the summer months.
Carol Dannon of East Norwich and her daughter Jillian called to say, "I wanted to tell you the picture is taken in front of Muir's store, the adorable girls' clothing store down on South Street.
"The current mystery picture [Nov. 3] is of 106, facing south at the Blueberry Shopping Center. It should be on the left, are we right?" Yes, that is correct!
Billy Minicozzi identified the picture as being local. He is looking forward to the Super Bowl in February. He hopes it will be a bright and cold winter.
