Homer Laughlin House Parking Lot

Blogroll Me!
I got an email yesterday from a man who is trying to upgrade a photo on Wikipedia of Homer Laughlin House that was in East Liverpool Ohio. The photo they are using now is a picture of a parking lot. This house was registered as a historic site! It is hard to go backwards in time...but totally possible with photography. It is also remorseful in this case. You gotta wonder what municipal wisdom was behind this action.

What a storybook tale about a good old fashioned brother team who won a pottery contest and used the contest money to buy two kilns and put their towns (E. Liverpool and later Newell) and company on the map.

How tragic it is to lose the Homer Laughlin a parking lot.
