During the 1940s and 50s in Lorain, it seems that Richman Brothers was the place to go to purchase tickets to Cleveland sporting events, including the Indians, Browns and Barons. I'm not sure why.
I've posted several of those vintage Richman Brothers ads here over the years.
But something changed in the early 1960s. Suddenly, Gus Atthanasoff's Colony Bar became the local outlet to purchase Cleveland Indians tickets, as seen in the above ad that ran in the Lorain Journal on April 2, 1963.
Gee, seeing Chief Wahoo's smiling face in this ad reminded me that he's been banished to the reservation. The Chief has been a regular topic here on the blog since 2009.
