The Solution to the June Puzzler is here!

OK – I admit that this one was a bit obscure.  .  . 

But don’t we love a challenge? So here is the solution

The puzzler question was – Who is remembered as Seaweed Charlie?

And the solution is:

During World War II the Lakefront was the site of war planes criss-crossing the skies. Fighter pilots were receiving their training in aircraft carrier take-offs and landings off Navy Pier. There were many crashes during those exercises. It is said that one pilot, drowned in a crash,  occasionally crawls in full aviator’s uniform, dripping wet and covered with seaweed across Lake Shore Drive toward Evanston’s Calvary Cemetery. 

If you’re driving past Calvary Cemetery some night and see him, be sure to send Chicago Stories an alert of your good fortune!

See you all next month.
