Overview


Cleveland: 1930-2000 is the second of two volumes commemorating the history of the heart and pride of northeast Ohio, the city of Cleveland. Situated on the shores of Lake Erie, Cleveland emerged as an industrial and commercial giant at the end of the Nineteenth Century, earning herself the title of America's "Sixth City" as her population soared, nearing one million. Like many American manufacturing giants, Cleveland experienced a period of decline in industry and commerce, and as with many other urban areas, civil rights issues threatened to rip apart the fabric of the city. Yet, Cleveland emerged from these tumultuous times with a renewed commitment for a better future. Explore Cleveland's golden age, her decline, and her rebirth with this commemorative photographic history.
