Last issue’s mystery: The Jan. 29 mystery, shown at right, was a picture from 1979 of the railroad station in Branchville, S.C.

Hats off to those who correctly identified the image: George Graf of Palmyra, Va., Tom Tindall and Mary Honey Coan, both of Edisto Island; Paul Hedden of James Island; and Mary Bush Bryan of Hampton, S.C. (If there were others, we apologize for not identifying you, but some of our inbound emails over the last week didn’t get to us.)
