“Toledo has much to remember but surprisingly little memory of it.”
From Banksters, Bosses, and Smart Money, A Social History of the Great Toledo Bank Crash of 1931 by Timothy Messer-Kruse, The Ohio State University Press, 2004.
When Google put the microfilmed archives of my hometown newspaper, The Blade, on the Internet, I realized immediately it would be a treasure trove of history for someone who grew up there (and read the paper). So this is what Toledo History Box is all about. History, personal recollections, observations, just plain goofiness. It’s all there in black and white, all I’ve got to do is find it.
It is not an attempt to infringe on the copyrights of Google or the Toledo Blade, not that saying that is going to help me in the least. Also, this site has no relationship with The Blade whatsoever.
