This is prior to the Lorain Carnegie Bridge which was built around 1930. I imagine this intersection was demolished and the bridge was elevated over Columbus Rd.

Jefferson Avenue - Looking west up to what is now W. 3rd. I think it was named Central at that time. That building looks to be same one still standing at the bottom of Jefferson hill.

A couple of concrete supports are still around. There are 2 at the bottom of Clark hill and Quigley. I 've heard that no one is sure who owns them. That seems odd. I think that they should be preserved in any case.

St Michael Church under construction at Clark and Scranton ca. 1890. Roof is incomplete and the steeples are yet to built. I never imagined that the stone was originally light.
