A bit more

The Hollenden page at coolhistoryofcleveland. Stages, barbershops and "The Vogue Room" were all part of the story. One Thousand Rooms ... one hundred bathtubs. Hmmm

It amazes me

how prevelant cigars were in the early 20th century. In some of the pictures, there seem to be numerous prominent vendors everywhere. It must have been a major industry in its own right.

What's the difference...?

between an elephant and a mailbox?

If you have to ask, don't offer to mail any letters for me.

Sorry, very old joke.

May the road rise up to meet you

Interesting to note that it appears as if the road rises up to meet the curbs to form crosswalk locations, instead of using curb cuts the other way round.

Oh, it's a trash receptacle!

Dave, You are correct, by cracky. Me and Mr. Magoo have the same kind of problems.

I cannot have ANY of them!

I just happened to notice that a few of my "forbidden" indulgences are lined up in this picture as is the doctor's list in my conscience:

Riblets (small, meaty pork ribs)
Dairy (way over on the right)
Uneeda biscuit (on the mailbox)

What was the average age of expiraton expected in 1900? Where is the salad and produce? Tofu? Soy? Maybe it just SEEMS like we are living longer.

[Just wondering -- do you find that your postcards, Christmas cards and such never seem to reach their intended recipients? - Dave]
