That’s the subject of the photo in the upper left hand corner of the front page of the January 7, 1961 Lorain Journal, shown above.
Here’s a closer look at the photo.
That’s Mrs. Donna Ignatko, “smiling brunet secretary of Safety Director Gabor Toth” holding the sign for Fulmer Rd.
It’s interesting noting where the signs were going. There are several going into newly-annexed areas on the west side, including Fulmer Rd., Brenner Dr., S. Hogan Dr., etc.
Two more west side signs that jumped out at me were the ones for Baumhart Road and Marshall Ave.
Baumhart Road is now very important to me. Since I live in the eastern end of Vermilion, I use that particular highway to get on and off Route 2, and to get to the Ohio Turnpike.
And Marshall Ave. was the nearest cross street to us on Skyline Drive (when my family first moved there in late 1965).
