That's why I thought this ad for Ben Fabrizio and two of his Fabrizio Homes on Meister Road would make a good post. The two page ad ran in the Lorain Journal on May 11, 1957.
The land on which the two homes in the ad were located were part of the old Neuman Dairy Farm property. Both homes were located on the north side of Meister between Oberlin Avenue and Ashland Avenue.
I love the ad's architectural drawing of the house at 1328 Meister Road. There's something magical about a drawing created by an artist that makes it superior to a soulless computer rendering. But I'm sure I'm part of the minority when it comes to this kind of thinking.
Anyway, Meister Road is still a nice-looking neighborhood, with well kept-up homes including the two homes featured in the ad (below).
