Cleveland: Playhouse Square,1941
A view of Playhouse Square in Cleveland, from August or, September,1941. This is looking east down Euclid Avenue, from the intersection with Huron Road, which is on the left. Bad Men of Missouri has been held over for a second big week at the Allen. Behind the Allen the then closed, Mayfair Casino can be seen, which occupied the Ohio Theatre space briefly in the mid-30's. Also visible is Loew's State, and the RKO Palace.
I got this photo about 20 years ago at a train show, somewhere in Cleveland. The photographer is unknown.
