Loading up the Lakeview Park Easter Basket – 1958
Here's a classic Lorain holiday ritual captured on film in 1958. (Give it a click for a larger view.) Of course, it is the installation of the giant Easter eggs in Lakeview Park's famous Easter Basket. The photo appeared on the front page of the Lorain Journal on Saturday, April 5, 1958.
Here's a link to the equivalent 2011 scene on the Morning Journal's website, although the function is now performed by Lorain County Metro Park workers.
