10 Very Rare Photos Taken During WWII In Cleveland
Cleveland has a long and proud history, but our not-so-distant past is perhaps the most intriguing. During World War II, life in Cleveland was in a constant state of evolution. The Cleveland Bomber Plant (now known as the I-X Center) opened its doors, the tragic Cleveland East Ohio Gas Explosion claimed 130 lives and leaves destruction in its wake, and the Cleveland Rams won the NFL championship. The city was active, buzzing with energy and enthusiasm and, fortunately, the era was captured on film so that we may still admire our predecessors’ efforts today.
There is much to love when it comes to Cleveland, but our dedication to preserving the past is doubtlessly one of our greatest strengths as a community. What is your favorite local museum or historical institution?
