1968 Lorain Part 1

I spend a lot of time in the Lorain Public Library doing research, and inevitably while looking for one thing, I get sidetracked when I stumble upon something else. (Attention deficit disorder really slows down research!)

In this case, up in the Local History section I found a nifty little book created by Windsor Publications in 1968 for the Greater Lorain Chamber of Commerce. It's chock-ful of interesting photos of Lorain from that era, as well as ads and other graphics depicting a city that at that time was still brimming with optimism for the future. I'll be scanning and posting some of them in the next few days.
