Cuyahoga River dock workers
Description: Caption reads: "'Lunch at Riverside'. Though the oiley Cuyahoga is hardly a pastoral river, yet workers on the docks seem to like to eat their lunch at the edge of the river. Near Main Street bridge. District #4, Cleveland. File Negative #208. Project Photographer: Frank Jaffa, 1940." A secondary caption reads: "State Picture Book. Ident. - 17. Dummy page 16. Cuyahoga River at Cleveland. Dock Hands Eating Lunch. This photo must be returned to Ohio Writers' Project 8 E. Chestnut St., Columbus, Ohio." The Main Street High Level Bridge was built in 1939 to divert traffic from the crowded Detroit-Superior High Level and the Lorain-Carnegie spans. View on Ohio Memory.
