Because Lorain was such an industrial powerhouse it drew workers from around the world, but especially eastern Europe. I still remember occasionally visiting the Polish American Club for their Friday Fish Fry.
With the closing of the mills and ship yards most of the businesses that catered to these folks are long gone. But this remnant always catches my eye, with it's hopeful 1930s storefront looking a little more dilapidated each year.
