Dedication of Sandusky’s City Building in 1958

Local photographer Bob Frank took several photographs on the occasion of the dedication of Sandusky’s City Building on Meigs Street on  May 4, 1958.  Master of Ceremonies for the Dedication was John LaFene. A mobile studio from WLEC Radio was on hand to broadcast the event. Several local policemen stood at attention in front of the building.

Representatives of Amvets Post 17 presented an American flag to ex-officio Mayor Stuart Gosser, and the Commodore Denig Post, American Legion presented the Ohio flag. Longtime state legislator Ethel Swanbeck can be seen seated on the stand.

The Sandusky High School Band accompanied Pamela Mielke as she sang the Star Spangled Banner.

After the flag raising ceremony, over one hundred city employees conducted guided tours of the newly dedicated City Building.
