Street in Toledo, Ohio
Description: Reverse reads: "A Street in heart of Toledo, Ohio." This photograph depicts a row of houses in downtown Toledo, Ohio. There are several cars parked on the street. During the late nineteenth century, Toledo was known as the "City of Glass" for its numerous glass-producing facilities. However, due to its dependence on manufacturing, the city suffered high unemployment rates during the Great Depression. As World War II began, Toledo's industries began to focus on wartime production, and unemployment concerns disappeared. Toledo made a unique contribution to the war effort; home to the Willys-Overland Company, this firm began producing military Jeeps in 1941. View on Ohio Memory.
