Columbus Avenue in 1959

Columbus Avenue, as seen from the Cedar Point dock, is the view in this postcard, created by George Canalos, Inc. about 1959.  Businesses on the east side of the 100 block of Columbus Avenue include the Sunset Restaurant, Sherwin Williams Paints, the Amvets, Western Union, and Smith’s Drugstore. On the west side of Columbus Avenue, the James Cagney movie Never Steal Anything Small was playing at the State Theatre. Gray’s Drugs, the J.C. Penney store, and the LaSalle’s store are also visible in the postcard as you look past the State Theatre towards the south.  Note the vintage mailbox and automobiles.
