AGL_bike_trip_1924_18.jpg (57711 bytes)
 In the summer of 1924 my grandfather rode his bicycle around Lake Erie.

The old Hocking Valley coal dock on the east bank of the Maumee River in Toledo. The dock itself remains, just north of the I-280 bridge. The bridge in the photo would be the long gone Ash-Consaul Street bridge. The photo could have been taken from the Front Street overpass over the Hocking Valley Railroad. The overpass was being torn down last weekend. C&O bought the Hocking Valley and by the 1930's had built the Presque Isle lakefront docks which replaced this one as their primary coal dock in Toledo.
