Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- September 7, 2012

Yes, that is the Slayton Tower on Mount Hood -- in Melrose -- in a photo taken from the high rock promontory behind the apartment building at the corner of Franklin and Greenwood Streets. One can see the white spire of the Highlands Congregational Church on Franklin Street on the left side of the picture. And to the right, some two miles away, the Mount Hood Clubhouse is sharply visible. The camera used for this 10-year old photo was an early Nikon digital, model 5700, about the year 2002.
