Rumor has it that Riverview Florist is soon to become a member of East Liverpool's PARKING LOT CLUB!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This building is a feast for the eyes. It has been there as long as I can remember. I even worked there one spring helping to make corsaiges. Lots of people bought corsaiges for the prom at this site. It has been a part of our lives for a very long time.

I have been trying to get some attention paid to the Smith Auto Parts Store because they are going to make it part of the Parking Lot Club. Then, in my effort to get some attention paid to it, I discovered that they are also targeting this building. Ugh!! So I went down there yesterday and took all these pictures.

From what I understand they already have something else in mind for this space. So where are they going to put all this stuff?

Look at this door. It is beautiful. It even has a brass door knocker. You don't see work like this any more.

How could they even consider tearing this down? And how long are we going to let them take away our historical land marks? Where would we be without the men and woman who made and worked in these buildings? Without our past we would have no future.

Are they just going to bulldoze this place and haul it all away? How can we let them do that? Why would we? Please don't be afraid to say something if it bothers you, like it does me. If we don't say anything soon, it will all be gone. Then all we will have to look at is a bunch of parking lots.

Not sure why they need all these parking lots. Its not like there are any businesses for anyone to even have a need for parking. I dont know about you, but It was a treat for me to go to town with my grandma on Saturday morning for some shopping or just to go to JC Penney's or even Ogalvies. Now I hardly even feel safe just to drive thru the downtown area.
Its just unreal. We need a change and change starts with people who want change!!

I should have written...

East Liverpool are you for REAL??

That was not meant toward you. Sorry.
You have so many amazing thoughts and ideas and I really enjoy and look forward to reading your blogs.
Trust me, I am with you all the way!!
The last thing that EL needs is another parking lot. There are no businessess so why all the parking? EL is nearly a ghost town.
It is becoming a really sad thing!
