Heights historical photo of the month

Image Credit: City of Cleveland Heights

It's getting cold out there! In the past, Heights residents could ice skate on the parking lot of Cumberland Pool, which the city flooded for that purpose. In this image from around 1945, a man swings a child by the hands as a crowd of skaters looks on. Ice or no ice—don't try this at home!

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