Losses include: City Hall, Diebolt Brewing Co., Luna Park, Sheriff Street Market, Hotel Winton, League Park, Union Depot, Hotel Allerton, Leo's Casino, Cleveland Arena, Bond Store, The Hippodrome, Cuyahoga and Williamson buildings, Record Rendezvous, Standard Theatre, Hough Bakery, Cleveland Municipal Stadium, Memphis Drive-In, Parmatown Mall.

About the Author

Laura DeMarco is an arts and culture reporter for the Plain Dealer newspaper in Cleveland. She specializes in local history and lost landmarks, an interest that began with teenage adventures through abandoned buildings and Cleveland's industrial wastelands. She covers historical preservation, cultural institutions, immigrant groups, neighborhoods and the forgotten stories of Cleveland's most interesting characters. Her multi-media "Lost Cleveland" features are some of the most popular on Cleveland.com. She lectures at Cleveland schools, colleges and historical societies on these topics and more. A third-generation Clevelander, she grew up listening to her grandmother's and parents' stories of Euclid Beach Park, Municipal Stadium and downtown department stores and loves to share these with new generations.
