Cleveland's West Side Market
Cleveland's West Side Market is a matchless culinary and cultural resource, a nationally significant architectural treasure, and part of the city's distinctive urban landscape. In continuous use since it opened in 1912, the market is also among the oldest municipally owned and operated retail food arcades. Cleveland's West Side Market: 100 Years and Still Cooking chronicles the history of this notable landmark and all it offers consumers and culinary aficionados. Readers will discover foods, traditions, and family rituals that were started and nurtured at the Market and enjoy humorous, touching, and sometimes bawdy stories of what it was like to grow up, grow old, and carve out a living at the Market. The volume is rich with many rare, and until now unpublished, vintage and contemporary photographs and images that provide a delightful armchair tour of this magnificent landmark, which is a must-see destination for food lovers, no matter where they live.

The Lake View Cemetery

release date: Jan 01, 2014
The Lake View Cemetery
The Lake View Cemetery, founded in 1869, was modeled after the great garden cemeteries of Victorian England and France. Over 107,000 individuals are interred on the sprawling 285 acre expanse that is located four and one-half miles from Cleveland's Public Square. According to an 1870 Plain Dealer report, the cemetery was designed to combine all the attractive features that "nature and true art can produce" to harmonize nature's alphabet--"stone, earth, wood and water." The landscape was laid out with broad avenues and shady walks "near the fountains in view of many a rustic pile [edifice] and quiet grave and stately monument." The cemetery became the burial place for many of Cleveland's prominent citizens including James A. Garfield, John D. Rockefeller, and J. H. Wade. Cleveland photographer Barney Taxel has spent over a decade, during all seasons, exploring the stunning landmark. The culmination of the personal project is this collection of over two hundred of his creations that reveal the spirit and essence of the Lake View Cemetery. Not only are images of the famous Garfield monument and the Wade Chapel captured, but so are the artistic splendors of the landscape, stonework, and memorials. To provide context, the book also includes a history of the Lake View Cemetery based on archival research.
