One Last Greeting From Lorain
Local historian and archivist Dennis Lamont emailed me this last "Greetings from Lorain" postcard to go along with the rest of the collection. It has the tagline that Lorain used for a while: An Industrial Empire in Ohio's Vacationland.
I wonder if the real Vacationland region – which includes Vermilion, Huron, Sandusky, Oak Harbor and all points south down to Norwalk and Fremont – would object to Lorain joining the party?
The postcard is great because it includes the Lakeview Park of my 1960's youth, with its skimpy beach and view of the B&O coal-loading docks in the background.
Thanks, Dennis! I think the postcard collection is complete!
