Guess & Win (Past)
The contest has closed. The object is a CTA “L” ticket booth, specifically the wooden ticket booth that was formerly at the Berwyn “L” station before the renovation. We received 71 guesses. The 18 correct guesses were entered into a drawing for the $50.00 prize and one winner was chosen. Thanks to those who participated in our contest.
Guess what this object in the EHS Museum garden is and get a chance to win $50 in a drawing. One guess per person. The contest ends April 30, 2013. Drawing will be among those who guess correctly. The number of entries, number of correct guesses, and name of winner will be posted to our website in May. The winner will be notified via the email address furnished.
The odds are better than the Illinois Lottery, even though the payout isn’t as great!!
Hint (#1) The dimensions are approximately 7-1/2 feet tall, 8 feet long and 3 feet wide and, of course, its true color is not blue. There is a blue tarp wrapped around it.
Hint (#2) It is not a container for something; it is the something. There is nothing inside.
Hint (#3) It formerly was in another place in Edgewater.
Hint (#4) Most Edgewaterites have seen it… many times.
