The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
Appropriate for the 4th of July: Fun in the sun at 'Mud Lake in Culver City', circa 1957.
Uploader 'cgds' explains: "Water skiing at Mud Lake. This is in the same area where the Marina is today. Taken maybe around 1957, the first skier to come to shore is my brother, Dean, and the close up shot is of Mike Sanders. Dick Ireland's family has one of the boats. The white and green boat was ours and the guy sitting in the chair while skiing was always there. We had lots of fun at Mud lake but I bet it was very contaminated being surrounded by oil wells. Or maybe not?"
