Main Street Antiques of Oberlin, Ohio has Lorain artifacts for sale

Main Street Antiques in Oberlin Ohio has these wonderful Lorain Ohio artifacts for sale.   The wedding photos are thought to be of members of the Ricci Family that are connected to the Ricci Tailors that once were operating on Broadway in Lorain.  And the Lorain Tornado of 1924 full page print of the devasting scenes of the aftermath 

A November visit to the 530 Shop, LTD. in Lorain, Ohio brings back memories

Sharing photos from a visit in late November to the 530 Shop, LTD in Lorain, Ohio

Lorain, Ohio is my hometown and the 530 Shop on Broadway has been there a long time. 

The building was constructed after the great Sandusky/Lorain Tornado struck on June 28, 1924. 

It is wonderful to see it still standing and being used as an antique store! 

The proprietor is Jani Oehlke.  It has been in the Oehlke family for several generations.  

Hope you enjoy the photos!

The fun of Researching Ohio Bricks

I recently purchased three Ohio bricks (meaning that the word “Ohio” is stamped on them!) that I thought were really neat to have.  I knew I had some other older red bricks with different names stamped on them so I wanted to add the Ohio bricks to the small but now growing collection.

Sharing my photos of the bricks here. I cleaned them up with “D/2 Biological Solution”, a soft bristle brush, and regular water to rinse them off.  It will take awhile longer for them to lighten up more than they are now.  

Also sharing some great links that I found on the Internet about bricks made in Ohio:
