New book chronicles the history of University Circle

Posted By on Wed, May 9, 2007 at 3:38 PM

Folks looking for a last-minute Mother’s Day gift should pick up Cleveland’s University Circle, a photo-stuffed book all about our city’s arts hub. Clevelander Wayne Kehoe – a CSU graduate and local history buff -- compiled the volume from tons of old photographs (many of them courtesy of the Cleveland Press Collection. In addition to the area’s many museums and universities, Cleveland’s University Circle features backgrounds on the venues and a look at ethnic cultural centers – particularly Little Italy. The 200-plus black-and-white pics include shots of suit-and-tied businessman straddling bulldozers, striking janitors, and a cow with an artificial heart. There are also plenty of photos of museums, parades, and fabulous ‘dos from yesteryear. It’s a cool look at historical Cleveland. --Michael Gallucci
