Cleveland Guide Photographs
Description: Children playing on the playground of Lakeview Terrace, a federal housing project in Cleveland, Ohio, ca. 1940. This photograph was to be included in the Cleveland Guide, one of several guides on selected American cities to be published by the Federal Writers Project. The Federal Writers Program was a depression-era program created to employ writers. Most of the work for the Cleveland Guide was complete when the program was abolished in 1943. The Cleveland Guide was not published. View on Ohio Memory.
