Interesting to note,the cars are upright with tops blown off
Nice reference for redoing a top.
Also a result of early climate change.
Jay...great photos. This town is but a 40 minute drive from me. Same tornado ripped thru Sanduaky Ohio just north of me then continued on to Lorain. Leveled the yacht club plus many other structures. A year or so ago someo e posted a pic of a touring dumped into the shallow swamp area near where the tornado took down the city's water standpipe.
Tim, my Grandmother used to talk of that tornado, she was out getting the wash off the line when it came through Sandusky. I have seen other pictures over the years of downtown Sandusky what a mess. Jim
The town still looks like that today...we'll get around to cleaning it up sometime soon.
Dennis born and raised in Lorain, yes it does need some help, great location on both the Black River and Lake Erie but a economically depressed area. Some great old buildings still standing on Broadway where this picture was taken.
No disrespect intended to your fair city. I've been to Lorain many times and it is a very nice place. I'm just being my usual smart a@@. I apologize if I've upset you.
Dennis no, not upset, too much drama on this forum often enough. Can't disagree it was once a nice place to grow up, but I have never questioned whether or not leaving it was the right choice.
Lorain used to be a great place years ago particularly with the presence of the Ford plant. Well, without going too O.T., we all know pretty much what happened there so I won't go there. It went through a bit of a renaissance in the 90's, now seems to be slipping backwards a bit again, but they'll pull through. They're still doing a good job developing and promoting it's riverfront possibilities at least. Fortunately Spitzers are still there holding the place together! Back when I was Captaining the Goodtime I, for two years I ran the boat up and down the river to the steel mill for their riverfront gala event and it was showing great signs of progress then. Hope it continues.
