Real Gone Cleveland, Episode Ten Thousand

So much that is great about Cleveland almost inevitably disappears. This mural, titled "World Deluxe," located on the side of the Preisler Lumber Company (at the roundabout between Woodhill Road and Quincy Avenue), finally came down a couple of years ago when the building was demolished. I was able to capture these views of it in August 2014, before its final demise. The last, "in situ" view, is about half of the mural, which stretched for 240 feet along Mount Overlook Road. The mural was painted by Cleveland Heights graffiti artist Sano, with permission from the Preisler Lumber Company and the cooperation of the Cleveland School of the Arts.

Behind the Scenes at Rose Iron Works

The fabulous productions of the Rose Iron Works are well known, but not so often seen is the factory space on East 43rd Street where these creations have originated since 1904. In conjunction with the Cleveland Museum of Art's fall blockbuster exhibition "The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s," Rose Iron Works opened its doors on a Saturday in November for a talk about the storied history of the business by Bob Rose, president, and a look at its atelier.
