This is the second article on the Great Fire of 1905. Our experiences with reading about the fire it sometimes gets a little confusing trying to mentally place everything in your mind's eye.

No one living today was alive in 1905 and a lot of people who may read these articles may not have lived in East Liverpool for a number of years. Thus they may never had known the names of various buildings in the area of the fire in 1905 or may have forget ten the layout of this area.

This particular article not only describes the fire it provides a diagram of the area to help.

Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
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.
