Back then, the Journal was truly a Lorain paper and a watchdog too. In this article, the paper documented a few signs that were in dire need of attention and/or replacement by the Street Department.
Two are humorously mangled. One is unreadable.
The most interesting one to me is the street market that stood at 28th and Broadway that apparently had lost its lettering. The newspaper noted that “it looks like a Civil War monument.” It does!
In case you’re wondering (like me) what one of these looked like when it was readable, here’s one that somehow survived in Warren, Ohio.
