Heights historical photo of the month

Photo courtesy City of Cleveland Heights.

This is what the southwest corner of Cedar and Taylor roads looked like during the 1930s. The building is the same but the tenants, of course, have changed since then. In the photo, Miller's Pharmacy and soda fountain is on the corner, next to the Boulevard Fruit and Vegetable Market. Before the advent of the supermarket, residents did their produce shopping in small neighborhood shops such as this one.

This photo was selected by the Cleveland Heights Historical Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the diverse character and traditions of Cleveland Heights.
