A History of the NE Corner of Euclid Avenue and East 30th Street

CSU Archivist Bill Becker recently showed me a photo he'd found in his collection, of Fenn College students playing intermural football somewhere. We could faintly see Fenn Tower in the background and after some digging, discovered the identify of the old mansion in the foreground. So that meant this game was being played on the NE corner of Euclid Avenue and East 30th St. Well, I had other photos about that vacant lot, as my great-uncle had once had a driving range there, the "Hole In One." That parcel had once held "Andrews' Folly," the mansion of Rockefeller partner Samuel Andrews, which was reportedly too expensive to maintain. Now that corner is the home of WEWS TV. Here are photos of all four incarnation, as Millionaires' Row became today's Euclid Corridor.
