third foto miscellany 2012

A new innerbelt bridge of highway 71 is being built in Cleveland. These fotos are by Abbey Road by Annuciation Greek Orthodox Church.
 infra a colorful sign nearby, see the two walking penguins on the left

Excavator. Stephen Manka [Cleveland's Claes Oldenburg (if he liked stainless steel)].
 One of three similar on Superior Avenue, good spots to meet for the St. Patrick parade.
Ohio Bell Building and the Terminal Tower viewed from East 18th Street.
The Terminal Tower opened in 1930 and only the Empire State Building was taller.  The Terminal Tower remained the second tallest building in the world until 1964. The Ohio Bell Building was built, because the previous telephone switching station was in the way of the Tower complex construction. The Ohio Bell Bldg. looks like the Daily Planet Bldg. of  Superman's Metropolis. The two creators of Superman were from Glenville Cleveland. It was the tallest building in the city when completed in 1927.
 The Terminal Tower and Key Tower (formerly Society) viewed from West 20th street.
The Society Bank Tower was the tallest in the city since 1991. It is built next to the Society for Savings Bldg, which was the city's tallest from 1889-96.
