Thanks so much for this account. I’m Jerry Kapp. Yep, you guessed it…a few generations later.
Thank you for such a wonderful and information packed article. I actually love Toledo history, and collect books and articles about it. This is the first such detailed account of this ever changing living monument to our city. And a very special thank you to Me. Ligibel for saving the clock that has always been a landmark for as far back as I can remember. I am so excited to see its new facelift and working hands. What a treat! (P.s. if I had one more wish for this article, it would have told about the building fronts that currently grace Fort Industry Square and what buildings they originally came from and where they were located. I pray that the city of Toledo, in its current frenzy to bulldoze anything and everything, regardless of its historic value, will take note and in the future, save more of our architectural artifacts and heritage to reuse like it was in this instance.)
