The Saturday Review, Sat. Feb. 27, 1886.
Probably the end of the 1800's or very early 1900's. We're not sure this is the same building as the current Ridinger Building or not. There are other buildings in dowNtown East Liverpool that originally had 2 or 3 stories and had any additional story added later. The building to the right of the Thompson Building on the Diamond comes to mind as one.
As this photo shows, at some point in them a fourth story was added to the Lowe Building.
Today, picture taken from approx. the same place as the first picture in this series.
This could be at the time of the gasification of commercial buildings in the downtown or could be at the time the building was remodeled with the addition of a third story.
Note the reference to New Ridinger Building. Now that could mean new from ground up or new by virtue of a additional floor added and general remodeling.
