Cleveland Then and Now(r)
by Laura DeMarco




Overview -
Cleveland Then and Now matches archive images with contemporary views of the same scenes to reveal the past and present of this fascinating city.

Cleveland, Ohio, was founded in 1796. A prime location on one of America's great inland seas, Lake Erie, and good land transportation links to the rest of the United States made the city one of America's prime industrial metropolises by the early 1900s. Steel mills, factories, railroads, noise, and smoke dominated the landscape. Substantial civic buildings, grand mansions, and parks testified to Cleveland's wealth, while pollution, poverty, and disorder testified to the consequences of growth. Over a century later, its evolving identity has roots in medicine, banking, law, higher education, sports, and even rock and roll. Tradition amid change is the story ofCleveland, then and now.
