Other than Key Tower, in my lifetime I'd never seen anything but a parking lot at this site on Public Square, which was a blight for decades. Prior to being razed, the Chamber of Commerce building was a handsome example of Peabody & Stern's revival architecture. But what I didn't know until now was the original idiom was to be French Renaissance. Other than a rusticated base, figurine pillars, and a trio of arches near the cornice, this is an entirely different design from what was built.

No, that's got to be the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Very believable colorizing job. Well done....

#Cleveland 1900s - colorized @LeagueParkCle at the corner of East 66th St. & Linwood Ave. #ThisWasCLE https://t.co/j7RX2VT2jU



Amazing how the color turns a photo from old-timey to more immediate... Nowadays newspapers, mags, websites, etc., are adding false grayscale (aka black & white) images from recent times to make them seem older... most recent example: cleveland.com's photos of the Flats, with some then & now photos from the 1980s of D'Poos on the Water restaurant.  I'm like, wait a minute, they had color back then ... I was alive way back then!

Looking NE from Carnegie Ave up Willson (E 55). @thiswascle https://t.co/4YYh8kNbhK










And the insurance map above shows the Pennsylvania Railroad station at East 55th and Euclid (PRR continued to served the 1864-built Union Station on the lakefront after Cleveland Union Terminal opened, but this station at Euclid/55th was always the busiest of its Cleveland stations and stayed in service the longest, to 1964. PRR also had Cleveland stations at Woodland/79th and Harvard/Broadway that was torn down only about a decade ago.) This photo was before the PRR tracks were elevated through the East Side in 1915...







PRR station at Euclid/55th after the tracks were elevated. PRR ran 20 passenger trains in/out of Cleveland each day circa 1950 from/to its line to Hudson where it split for Akron, Columbus, Cincinnati and St. Louis, and the other busier line going to Ravenna where it split again taking one of two routes (via Youngstown or the faster route via Alliance) to Pittsburgh, Altoona, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, New York City. The last train ran until 1964, a commuter train to Alliance where it connected with the PRR's Chicago-East Coast mainline. Except the train wasn't scheduled to connect with anything. It's how the railroads sabotaged their own services to get rid of them.







The PRR station at Euclid/55th collapsed in 1973, as did much of the East Side in the 1960s and 70s.

A favorite photo from 'Lost Cleveland,' Bond store, 1978, the year the Art Deco masterpiece on Euclid torn down.

It would have been great if National City had incorporated the facade into their tower instead of having that big plaza right on the corner like they have now.

This was built at the same time (1947) as the Hanny's store in downtown Phoenix AZ. There's just too much similarity to be coincidental IMHO. Question is, which is the original?

It seems that since the forum has been back up, a lot of the posted pictures are really small (with the exception of KJP's Bond picture).  Anyone know why?  Thanks.

All you have to do is click on the photo and it will automagically resize. Click again to make small.
I actually prefer it this way

BTW, on the previous page of this thread, rather than just rely on a link to a twitter posting, I posted the actual pictures of Wilson/East 55th at Euclid, notably the old Pennsylvania Railroad station that was there for nearly a century.

I know, but when I'm reading the forum on my iphone it's really annoying to see such a small picture and then have to click on the photo.  It's two extra steps that aren't necessary.  Do any of the mods know if this issue will be fixed so full size pictures will be appearing as before the crash?

NW Section of @CLEPublicSquare where the monument to Moses Cleaveland was erected. ca. 1920. BTW, every building in this photo was replaced with surface parking lots except the Rockefeller Building at far left....

Not to mention they ruined the Marshall Building (Schofield-style) years before tearing it down.

Interesting.   Sol Bergman jewelers, which heavily advertised for decades and was seen as one of the staple stores, started out as a pawnshop.
