Tornado Damaged Fifth and Brownell – Then & Now

Here's another vintage postcard showing a neighborhood devastated from the Lorain Tornado of June 28, 1924. It's one in the series of postcards currently on Ebay with the DSAP imprint of the postcard dealer.

The caption reads, "Every house in the block total wreck. Looking E. on 5th from Brownell, June 29, 1924."

Ninety-two years later, the neighborhood – with its tall shade trees – shows no scars from the tornado.

You can recognize at least two homes in this aerial view from the vintage postcard.
