90 Years in 90 days: Documenting Cleveland Heights Ohio


courtesy clevelandmemory.org


I’ve only been working on this series a week, but the response has been fantastic. We’ve gotten followers, suggestions and comments. My favorites so far: The Bessers who recognized their grandfather’s store in our first photo; the children of Gail Kirschenbaum Bash, who contributed a story about her recycling efforts.

I’m learning quite a bit about the suburb that neighbors mine. and I’m doing a lot of research in addition to taking photographs. Follow us on twitter @clevelandhpatch

Since Monday, I’ve been working on a great assignment for Cleveland Heights Patch. In 1921, Cleveland Heights officially became a city, so the site is creating a scrapbook for the anniversary. We’re calling it “90 Years in 90 Days:90 photos that define Cleveland Heights”
I’m acting as photographer and photo editor, so I’m creating and curating content. Of course, I’m tweeting and facebooking so I’m building community as well.
We’ve gotten some interesting feedback so far. The Besser family contacted us about the photo on the left.  They didn’t know their foreparents had a store at that location.
