Heights historical photo of the month

Photo courtesy City of Cleveland Heights.

Warm weather means it's time for ice cream! In the past, Cleveland Heights residents seeking a cold treat would head to their nearest corner drug store and have a seat at the soda fountain that served up ice cream sodas, egg creams, sundaes and cones.

The photograph above, taken in the late 1930s, shows Marshall's Drugs in the Douglas Building, which still stands on the northwest corner of Cedar and Lee roads.

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