Shadows of East Liverpool History on River Road

 There is a lot of history that sits on  River Road in East Liverpool.  Old Potteries, gas stations, and other ghosts of memories leave you wondering what it looked like down there once upon a time.
An old gas station sits along the road, the old gas pumps either laying on the ground or up against the building. 

On this gas pump, the price is .80 per gallon.  I barely remember gas prices like that. 

Another one said $1.40 per gallon. 

There are old buildings that, over the years have been used for many different businesses.  One of them belongs to the original C.C. Thompson Pottery,but at this time, I am not sure which one.

I would love to investigate this building! I imagine it has some tales to tell! 

All beside the Jennings-Randolph bridge connecting Ohio to West Virginia.  Even this bridge has it's tragedies to tell. 

This is the back of one of the previous buildings shown.  It has some legible writing across the top.  ESTABLISHED 1877  COLONIAL POTTERS
There is other writing across the top, but I can't make it out. If you know anything about this building, its history, or who owns it (as I would love to have a peak inside this one, too), please let me know.
