Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- February 1, 2008
Strange, in this bustling suburban city of Melrose, that this is a photo of one local family's front yard. But then, our town is partial to trees and lawns and every house enjoying its own architecture. And so in this month of Valentines and Presidents, we celebrate our city -- in words and pictures in a special section. And, by the way, the "yard" is that of the McCarthy-Brown family on Spear Street.
