Christmastime in Youngstown, Ohio, 1958

Christmastime in Youngstown, Ohio, 1958

Photograph of downtown Youngstown appeared on the cover of the Youngstown Jaycee publication of the Youngstown Junior Chamber of Commerce, Volume 2, Number 3, December 1958.

Joe Dannery, Editor of the Youngstown Jaycee, got this photograph from the Vindicator Newspaper (Newspaper for Youngstown, OH).

Do you recognize the building - or know of any of the businesses in the building? Please let me know.


The building to the left of the Christmas tree is the Mahoning National Bank building. The tall building to the right of the tree is the Central Tower. The photo is taken looking Southwest from the Square. I suspect that the lighted windows forming a cross are in honor of the Christmas season, and not a coincidence.
