Hardware history may be wiped out

Lakefront Hardware, in the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood, is not only an old-fashioned hardware store with roots 101 years deep, but it's also the site where automatic automobile windshield wipers were invented. Owner Ray Zelch needs to sell the store and he and the neighborhood are afraid that there won't be a buyer willing to continue this legacy of service. (Kaye Spector. "History may go way of hardware store," Plain Dealer. Sunday, June 4, 2006. Page B-2.)
