Cleveland lakefront postcard
Description: Caption reads: "Lakefront scene from river entrance Cleveland Ohio." Reverse reads: "Credit to Carl McDow; Return after using." Cleveland prospered in the late nineteenth century, profiting from nearby deposits of iron ore and coal, and built on major transportation routes such as the New York Central railway and the Ohio-Erie canal. The Great Depression decimated the city's oil and steel industries; by 1933, one-third of Cleveland's workforce was unemployed. View on Ohio Memory.
