Photos: Here's What Cleveland Looked Like in 1889

Originally published by H.R. Page and Co. in 1889, Cleveland Illustrated was given to the Michael Schwartz Library of Cleveland State in 2003. The book contained 135 images of early Cleveland. Thankfully, they were saved and preserved and are now a glorious snapshot of what the city looked like before the turn of the century.
