The View Towards Gel-Pak Then and Now

Here's another 1986 view looking south on Broadway, just before the road began to be torn up for the construction of the Frank Nardini underpass. The old Gel-Pak building is on the left; all the buildings on the west side are already gone.

And here's my shot from last weekend, looking across the railroad tracks. Relocated Broadway swoops down to the right below them.

The Gel-Pak building was in the news quite a bit this year. Although the new high school will not be built behind it, the building is still going to be renovated to become the new home of Lorain County Health & Dentistry according to this story.
