Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- November 2, 2001

Here in the florally adorned city of Victoria, British Columbia we found the perfect photo-op spot. Couples paired up to take advantage, in a quick "We'll take your photo...you take ours" agreement. Mid-town, the inner harbor and the Parliament Building are shown. Center stage: Barbara Bennett with Russ Priestley, one of the Mirror Editors and author of the accompanying article.
