Silverlake.com may be dead, but Silverlake still has a neighborhood website
that has a comprehensive links page
, a truly excellent collection of historic pics
of the reservoir and surroundings, and a disappointing (blank, actually) community news page.
And did I mention that the pics are stellar? For those of you in the Los Feliz viewing area click here
for this aerial view of the neighborhood, circa 1922. Things have definitely changed, but the familiar pattern of the streets allowed me to find the structure that once stood on the site of my apartment building.
Also of note: pics of the movie studios
that once housed Mack Sennett, Walt Disney, and others, from the time when this corner of L.A. was the epicenter of the industry.
