The Plain Dealer and Advance Ohio are pleased to present a new hardcover coffee table book, "Cleveland Memories: The Early Years."
This beautiful heirloom-quality book features a glimpse of Cleveland from the early years to 1939 through stunning historic photos. We are thrilled to include photos from our readers, in addition to photos carefully selected from the Cleveland Public Library.
The book was all that I had hoped for. Many pictures brought back memories. I already have Vol. 2 and 3 so this makes my set complete. An interesting note- the picture of the streetcar on the cover showed car #503. I was able to look up in my book "From Horse Trails to Regional Rails" ( a history of the Cleveland Electric Railways) and determined when this car was retired from service. I now have a complete package of Cleveland's history of which a lot of it I lived through (1934 to 1955) and intermittently to now. Thank you very much! Now, maybe in the future you could do a workup on Fort Wayne, Indiana. A lot of good history there.
Very pleased with this purchase. The book is of excellent quality. The contents are equally good. Excellent history, beautiful old photographs, easy to read.
