(click photo to enlarge)

  • The new Bay Shopping Center, built in 1949. Notice the Scholl farmhouse in the lower right corner. Notice the medical office behind the gas station. Notice the fields and trees. On the east side of Dover Center Road you see the Elizabeth Cahoon house, still standing but for sale today, and on the corner of Normandy and Dover the Fisher family home (now replaced by the PNC Bank building).

  • Mayor Dr. Edward Knoll works on a patient.

  • An 1949 article in the Plain Dealer features an aerial view of the new shopping center.
