Description

“Be prepared to be hungry, not only for your favorite foods, but for the special times from your childhood.” — Currents

Remember when food was local? Cleveland companies made it, and local people sold it and ran the restaurants where we ate it. Now, take a delicious trip into the past.

Food makes powerful memories. Mention Hough Bakery and see how quickly we Clevelanders start to drool over just the thought of those long-lost white cakes. This book collects the fondest memories of Clevelanders who still ache for treats from the past. There were Frostees in the Higbee’s basement. Popcorn balls at Euclid Beach. Burgers at Manner’s or Mawby’s. Entertainment-filled nights at Alpine Village. Mustard at old Municipal Stadium . . . and so much more.

Richly illustrated.
