Easter in Lorain – 1954

What was Easter like in Lorain in 1954?

This short article – which ran on the front page of the Lorain Journal on Saturday, April 17, 1954 describes it very nicely. It's actually quite quaint in its description of overflowing church attendance and the "usual Easter Parade" which my mother has mentioned to me many times, to my disbelief.

Also of interest in the article is the reference to the opening of the 1954 season at some of the resort dance halls east and west of Lorain.

That sure is a cute photo. I wonder if the Frederick family still has that four foot Easter bunny?

Anyway, here's hoping you enjoy a Happy Easter!
