Photo essay: Beebe School oil tank removal

 ... It all happened behind the Milano Senior Center.

SilverStringer shoots her first news story

When the City of Melrose acquired the Beebe Estate it eventually had to deal with envionmental considerations -- including removal of an old, potentially leaky steel oil storage tank. In this case, the tank belonged to the Beebe School next door, but was partly on Milano House property. These photos follow the progress of the job -- taken with the new Kodak digital camera loaned to the SilverStringers by the Media Lab at MIT.

Editors' note: Mrs. Bertulli is the manager/coordinator at the Milano Senior Center.
