Title West Silver Lake Drive
Description West Silver Lake Drive looking north across Silver Lake. West Silver Lake Drive was created by real estate developers George W. Dickinson and Company in 1925 when they developed a new housing project along the west shore of Silver Lake. "Moreno Highlands Lake Front homes," were completed in 1926-1927. Engineers working on streets, curbs and sewers referred to the drive as "Redesdale," a street in the hills northwest of Silver Lake.
