do you remember the cleveland of your youth? pulling into public square on the rapid transit from windemere. the cavernous hall of the terminal tower were filled with office workers and shoppers. those were the days. thanks for the excurion. btw; i like your refelection photos a lot.

Every photo here is a gift, Thank you.
I am especially curious about the stacked backhoe scoops. A very interesting way to stack them, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out a logical reason why anyone would wish to do such a thing, considering how hard it must be to unstack them.

hey man, i love this post. in my eyes it pretty accurately captures the essence of downtown cleveland.
however, my understanding about the future of the cleveland trust tower doesn't quite synch up with yours. what i've heard is that cuyahoga county just bought the entire cleveland trust complex (the tower and the rotunda) amidst rumors that they'll be opening a new administrative facility there. if that is in fact the case, i'm hoping that they leave the tower's facade untouched (except, perhaps, for a well-deserved cleaning). the building, though far from universally-beloved, is a significant piece of brutalist architecture done by a little guy named marcel breuer. i'd be pretty bummed if the building came down.
also, if you've never been inside the rotunda (the shorter, early 20th C. building right on the corner of euclid and e. 9), try to find a way inside that beauty. though it's been closed for quite a while, it's without a doubt one of donwtown cleveland's finest architectural gems.

Man! I just had a flashback to that talking tree. I couldn't have been more than 5 years old. I remember really long lines and there was some kind of neon lips hooked up to a tree right? Talk about a trip down memory lane.
