The Coliseum Part 2

Here's an ad for the Coliseum that ran in the 1951 Lorain phone book. The same ad ran for several years, with the only difference being that this ad listed the address as 2800 W. Erie Avenue instead of Stop 104.

If you compare it to the early photo in my previous blog, you can see a few structural modifications to the front of the building since the early days.

I asked my mom what she remembered about the Coliseum. She remarked that she remembers seeing Chief Don Eagle wrestle there. And for those of you (like me) who don't know who Chief Don Eagle was, click here to visit a fellow blogger who is an expert on the subject!
