Toledo Birds-eye Views
Description: This aerial view of Toledo, Ohio, shows the downtown area marked by several skyscrapers. The Maumee River is seen in the upper right section of the photograph. The tallest structure is the former National City Bank building (now the PNC Bank), 405 Madison Avenue, built in 1932. The steel-frame skyscraper, which has a limestone exterior, is designed in the Art Deco style. It was the tallest building in downtown Toledo until 1969, when the Fiberglas Tower was completed. Another landmark structure is the Cherry St. Bridge (now the Martin Luther King, Jr. Bridge), which spans the Maumee River. In this photo, the bridge is visible above and to the right of the National City Bank. It is a bascule bridge (drawbridge), whose moveable section is located slight left of center.
