Built during the 1890's and called the Exchange Building. There were professional offices on the second floor. Several different businesses used the first floor.

Yes once upon a time what was to become the Woolworth 5 & 10 did have a fancy top to it. This picture originally posted December 30, 2009 By Paulette Davis Boley on her Facebook Site "Memories of East Liverpool, Ohio" A photo from the Genealogy Pit Stop Web Site


D.M. Ogilvie and Company built their building on the northwest corner of Washingon and E 5th Street in 1912 after they had been in the Diamond and the Exchange Building next door since 1905.

If you look down East 5th you can see the Woolworth Building near the end of the block. It still seems to have its top. This picture was probably in the 1940's.

In the 1990's.

This shows the buildings most distinctive features even after the top and balconies were removed the front of the second floor is still the eye catcher. Picture taken June 29, 2011.

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.
