  1. Great shot Scott, Silver Lake looks so rich in hue it resembles a giant swimming pool.

  2. Here’s some news for you. A Silverlake man was mauled by a large dog that broke loose from it’s owner near the reservoir Monday night. He was walking his dog and a large dog that was being walked across the street by a woman broke free and ran across the street attacking him. He spent an hour in surgery having the damage repaired. That’s all the info I have right now.

  3. Ivanhoe Res. had a cover way back in the thirties from the pictures I’ve seen and the houses were few.
