There was on the corner of market and East fourth building that housed Brady's coffee shop. The travelers hotel, The Trinity Presbyterian Church, and Thompson's music store later to be known as Smith and Phillips.

This picture taken in the very late 1800s are very early 1900s among the Dr. Burkett glass slides says fourth Street and market Street. But it doesn't identified which direction you're looking east or west.

n the late 1800's, when Travelers Hotel was built, there were eight hotels in East Liverpool. Thomas Lounds is the first known proprietor. The original name was the Landora. The hotel stands today on the original location at 117 East Fourth Street. Thomas Lounds evidently only kept the hotel a short time before selling it to William Hill and Richard Edmunston. Later the Edmunstons became the sole owners. Mrs. Edmunston brought Michael Forzano to manage the hotel. Mike later brought his two brothers, Frank and Richard, to fill many of the positions needed to keep a smooth running complex hotel. In the summer of 1981 Richard Forzano, the only surviving brother, sold the hotel to Norman Six and his family, and a revival of the Travelers is underway. The picture was taken in 1909.
