Jam packed

What is going on in that second block up on the right? The sidewalk is crammed with people! Am I seeing this correctly?

City Flag

The lower flag on the pole just left of center is the Cleveland City Flag, adopted in 1896.

GWS Society

The GWS Mission (lower right) is run by the Gospel Worker Society. The society published nondenominational fundamental Christian literature, and set up missions in "gospel-neglected towns". They moved their headquarters to Cleveland in 1907, and changed their name to the Union Gospel Press in 1922. They are still publishing; they specialize in Sunday School lessons.
