Photos from Riverside-Brookfield's 1981 Fall Strike

Some great photos sent to us by Jay Aldrich during Riverside-Brookfield High School's Fall Strike in 1981! Do you remember?

"As a Freshman in the Fall of 1981, I took some pictures of the teacher strike with my brand new camera. The picture showing joyous students pouring out of the building was taken immediately after it was announced that the strike was on and that they were being dismissed. Later that week, I walked around and took a few more pics of various teachers carrying signs. I was received fairly cooly by a few as you can see from their expressions."

Riverside Illinois' New Year's Water Tower Fire of 1913

In the early hours of New Years Day, 1913, a fire destroyed the wooden tank, the pump house, and much of the upper stories of the Water Tower. 

This is what Riverside's 1700 residents woke up to over a century ago!
