East Liverpool Historical Society

I didn't venture out very far in the basement. I didn't have a flashlight and after taking as many pictures as I did often time using the flash, I didn't know how much battery I had left. It was pitch black down there. The sound of dripping water pretty evident and the black mold on the walls going down wasn't so inviting either. So I took these from the base of the stair case. If they have a open house before the school opens I will try to get some more pictures of the basement area.

Appears to be black mold.

The remaninig pictures are of what I took of the basement.




The Ogilvie's Building and Woolworth Building will once more come to life in the fall of 2016 as the East Liverpool branch of The New Castle School of Trades. http://www.ncstrades.edu/

The workers began work on the remodling of both the former Woolworth/General building and the former Ogilvie's about October 29, 2015 to meet the requirements that the New Csstle School of Trades needed.

Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
