It’s Check-Out Time for Shoreway Motel

Vintage postcard of the Shoreway Motel in happier times
Lorain’s certainly not wasting any time demolishing the Shoreway Motel on West Erie Avenue. I noticed last Thursday that a big red dumpster (below) had taken up residence there. That ominous sign is as good as hearing the fat lady sing.

Sure enough, when I drove by there today, the demolition was well underway.
I resisted the urge to grab a souvenir cinder block for my collection.
Oh well, here’s hoping the great signs out front get a new home.
Remember when the Shoreway Motel was for sale back in 2010? It still looked pretty good back then.
