Description: Toledo Express Airport, shown in these two photographs taken in the 1960s, opened in January 1955. Two years earlier, Toledo voters passed a levy for $3.5 million revenue-bond issue that allowed for construction of the airport. With funds from local corporations, including Owens-Illinois Inc., Owens Corning, Libbey-Owens-Ford, Champion Spark Plug, Willys-Overland, and Electric Auto-Lite, the airport was one of only a handful of municipal airports constructed across the nation without federal funds. Toledo Express is located on 1100 acres in Monclova and Spencer townships in western Lucas County. The slides measure 2.75" x 2.75" (6.99 x 6.99 cm). View on Ohio Memory.
