Does anyone have the backstory on the Tremaine-Gallagher house (shown in link). I cannot find much but would love to know its story as well as its original owner's... http://www.loc.gov/pictures/search/?q=Photograph%3A%20oh0016&fi=number&op=PHRASE&st=gallery

On May 15, 1978, Ord. 716-78 was passed designating Ceska Sin Sokol Hall as a #Cleveland Landmark. Built in 1890 as Hungaria Hall, it was purchased in 1907 by a group Czech societies. Read about its history and importance to NE Ohio College gymnastics: https://t.co/Ln1dp0EbQJ

LOL that is next door (sort of) and I am pretty sure it is still in use as a gym.

I was served adult beverages in most of those bars although I was underage ID's weren't required. Here is a photo I took at the BP Riverfest circa middle 80's.

Redirected from the Cleveland West Park thread... Mining Company wasn't in Parma. It was in Cleveland -- 5100 Pearl Road. It was in the same building with another Cleveland institution of my teen years -- Peaches records. Mining Company was to the right of the tower.

I apologize @KJP , between this and Lucky's, that is two Cleveland border establishments you have had to correct in as many days! In my defense, it was my dad's fault, haha.

While Western Reserve was playing their home football games at League Park during this era, Case Tech played at their games at lowly, but historic, Van Horn Field.  Here's an aerial view of a home game from 1935:

Side historical note: September 28, 2018 will mark the 100-year anniversary of famed Notre Dame coach Knute Rockne's coaching debut at the football field shown in this aerial, Van Horn Field.

You'll also notice a few prominent buildings, plus all the houses along Adelbert Road and Euclid Ave that are no longer standing.

Euclid Ave, 1911 - while Cleveland was the 6th largest city in the country behind New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and Boston.

It was 5th:
https://www.biggestuscities.com/1910

Cleveland and Detroit displaced St. Louis and Boston in 1920
https://www.biggestuscities.com/1920

Los Angeles displaced Cleveland, pushing it from #5 to #6 in 1930
https://www.biggestuscities.com/1930

Top 6 stayed the same in 1940
https://www.biggestuscities.com/1940

Cleveland fell to 7th in 1950, displaced by Baltimore at #6
https://www.biggestuscities.com/1950

Cleveland in 1960 fell to 8th, displaced from 7th by Houston
https://www.biggestuscities.com/1960

And Cleveland's last appearance in the top 10 was in 1970
https://www.biggestuscities.com/1970

Today, every city in the top 10 is at 1 million or more. And every city in the top 25 is at 600,000 or more.

I love coming across old photos of Cleveland that I've never seen before. These pictures of Euclid Ave, just east of E 55th St, were taken by @CLEcityplanning in the mid-1980s. Imagine what this area could be like today if those buildings still existed.

The loss of this area makes me absolutely sick to my stomach. This is an example of local (CDC, City) and regional (transit authority) having no foresight on redevelopment or simply even a sense of optimism. Demolition was their only tool.
What replaced this pales in comparison by any measure.

My gut wholeheartedly agrees with you. The lack of foresight of many of our past leaders is nauseating.

However, I think part of what holds us back as a region is the aging industrial infrastructure - I'm not sure that would apply here, but if Midtown can take off, I'll feel a little less bad about the hit job to Euclid Ave

Photo taken the year my father was born. My father said it was Cleveland's best decade of 6-8 really good decades in a row, and its last good decade. Until...

The absolutely beautiful labyrinth of cable car wires above the street. Only to be replaced with buses permanently a few decades later.
