  1. I live in Chicago and am a teacher librarian for Chicago Public Schools. I just returned from a trip to Cleveland for a family wedding. I immigrated to America as a child,and settled in Cleveland for two years. This was my first opportunity to visit the old neighborhood of my memories. Needless to say, it has all changed. We lived at 3015 S. Superior Avenue. That house is, as are most of the houses, gone. I did see the Groh Mansion. I’m happy to see that it has been preserved and beautifully restored. I remember going in there once to sell chances for our church – St. Josephat. I see that the church is now an arts center. Sadly, it was locked when I visited, and could not gain access. Sterling Park is still there, but not at all recognizable from my childhood memories. I also remember the Goodrich House at 1420 East 31st Street. The highway is located there now.
    My question is: How can I locate any photos of this neighborhood, and these places, specifically, from the era around 1955-1957?

    I have already Checked the Groh Mansion and the Goodrich House websites but found very little. Any suggestions?

    Thank you for your time,

    Marie
