Did you visit Navy Pier on Monday, August 4?

I picked up a Navy Pier photograph print off the sidewalk at W Lake St & N Dearborn St on August 4, 2014 around 3pm. It's a little dented but still in good condition, so I figured I'd post in case the photo is missed. I am willing to mail it anywhere if you provide another picture of yourselves (as proof of identity)!
