At its height, Cleveland was a center of industry. Nearly 1 million people called the city home, and all of them needed various assortments of goods, wares and sundries. To serve their desires, fabulous stores once graced the city. The names alone—Higbee’s, Halle’s, May Company, Taylor Son & Company, Sterling Linder and Bailey’s—conjure a comforting memory of sophisticated style and lost glamour. At the heart of this consumer paradise stood Euclid Avenue, Cleveland’s golden façade. With its dynamic retail stores, homes to countless millionaires and elevated air, it was one of a trio of famous American retail promenades alongside New York’s Fifth Avenue and State Street in Chicago. Local historian Michael DeAloia’s illuminating chronicle evokes the golden age of Cleveland’s prestige and elegance.
