Let's throw a Lakewood pic in here...

Looking north along the east side of Warren Rd. at the Fazio's Supermaket. Originally a Fisher Foods Supermarket, the building was remodeled for a United States Post Office (1987).  Source: @Cleve_Memory

#Cleveland, 1905/2018 - The Hotel Euclid at the intersection of Euclid Ave., East 14th St. and Huron Rd.  Seen here a couple of decades before the Playhouse Square district was even established.

Was a mob-run brothel, loanshark HQ, hangout for the last few decades of its existence, until the 1980s. Was run by Sam Lucarelli who was convicted and sentenced to prison for racketeering following a 1985 FBI raid.

It was right next to it.

^are you serious? I was just joking. That's great though. You should try to get it restored. I wonder how long this co. was in business, and where was it located? I found the picture on the Lake Co. Historical Center facebook page, with no other info.

Lol my grandpa was a Cleveland fireman from 1945-1976(?)

He used to always search abandoned warehouses after fires and if there was no ownership of the items, they were free to take them.

He has this and a VERY old Indian motorcycle, I think both are absent motors, though.

My favorite item is a mug from Leisy Brewery

Not a very flattering photo. What an incredibly dirty street, even though it's brick. And this was 58 years before the tactical neutron bomb, so we can't blame that for the dearth of humanity.

Look at those apartment buildings on Walnut! Scenes are from 1948...

Ruined my afternoon. Looks like a ready made residential neighborhood built up to one of the edges on Downtown to me. So glad we eliminated it for CSU parking and other worthless motives. What a joke.

It's so easy to imagine this scene as a currently thriving neighborhood. Our great grand-parents (depending on how old you are I suppose) squandered our future on freeway exits and parking lots.

We could rebuild like that if we wanted to.  Not overnight obviously.  But if our great-great grandparents can do it, we can too.

I did a little more digging.  It looks like it's proprietor, Sherman Rappaport, produced displays for conventions and exhibits.

https://books.google.com/books?id=PyEEAAAAMBAJ&lpg=PA53&ots=KwPWfMevfS&dq=%22sherman%20rappaport%22%20cleveland%20studios&pg=PA53#v=onepage&q=%22sherman%20rappaport%22%20cleveland%20studios&f=false

Huh. I could picture them being a big player in the mad-men era of advertising in CLE. A friend told me once the ad guys used to test run their ideas across their colleagues at the Hermit Club, which consequently is a stones throw away from Rappaport.
