Caption on reverse in pencil: "Looking west from North Shore Dr. toward Silver Beach - School upper center right" and "Silver Beach ? Lake Whatcom" Lake Whatcom in the foreground looking across to houses, docks, stores and school at Silver Beach. An elegant multistory gabled house faces the water on the right side of the picture. The school is part way up the hill (Alabama?) - no other buildings are above it. The hill is covered with denuded trees (spars?) left standing after their branches were cut off. The shoreline in the foreground is littered with wood.
